Braimah Kamoko, also known as “Bukom Banku,” a former heavyweight boxing champion of Ghana, according to Mohammed Amin Lamptey, the director of communications for the Ghana Boxing Authority, is deserving of all the punishments the court has meted out to him.
He claimed that the star’s string of violent crimes has damaged the reputation of the industry.
An Accra Circuit Court ordered the boxer into police prison for a week on the grounds of aiding criminal activity.
The professional boxer, his son, and another person are accused of damaging Prosper Quaye’s property in Bukom and stabbing him in the abdomen with a bottle.
The accused, who showed up in court, however, entered a not guilty plea.
Mohammed Amin Lamptey, the Ghana Boxing Authority’s director of communications, responded to the incident in an interview with Citi News by saying, “When I heard the tale, I was absolutely appalled. He has done a lot for the boxing community and is, as you are aware, a member of the boxing authority. He was among the most skilled and alluring boxers Ghana has ever used.
“Bukum Banku is one of the nicest people in his neighborhood. However, his acts end up turning out to be highly dubious when he starts to sort of engage himself with individuals in banter or friction. Bukum Banku needs to continue learning lessons, thus I hope he won’t be let off the hook. He has frequently engaged in behavior that lands him in trouble with the law and in court, but he has also had issues with leniency and has been let off the hook in certain cases.
He added that Bukom Banku’s sentence will act as a warning to other young, aspiring fighters.
