Bukom Banku and son remanded over stabbing incident
Briamah Isaac Kamoko, also known as “Bukom Banku,” is a professional boxer from Ghana. An Accra Circuit Court ordered him to spend the next week in police custody on the charge of aiding criminal activity.
According to reports, he helped Prosper Quaye hurt Ismael Quaye at Bukom in the Greater Accra Region.
Bukom Banku was in court alongside his son Mustapha Kamoko, who was also accused of causing damage.
The 50-year-old Bukom Banku and his son Mustapha Kamoko have entered a not-guilty plea.
Prosper Quaye, their accomplice, a 32-year-old unemployed man being arrested on a charge of inflicting unauthorized damage, failed to show up in court for the taking of his plea.
As a result, the Court issued an arrest warrant for him.
Prosper Quaye arrived at the court early but told the judge that his stomach hurt and that he was going to get some narcotics, according to Mr. Godwin Amoah, the accused’s attorney.
In his request for bail, Mr. Amoah stated that his clients were family members and had reliable witnesses to serve as sureties.
He claimed that they had set homes and were not a “fright risk.”
The prosecution opposed the request for bail on the grounds that the applicant had previously committed a similar offense and that if released on bail, they would impede police investigations.
In addition, a bench warrant for Prosper Quaye’s arrest was requested.
Therefore, they were remanded into police prison for seven days with a date of reappearance of December 19, 2022 by the court presided over by Mrs. Adelaide Abui Keddey.
The complainant, Mr. Ishmael Neequaye, a football player who lives in Bukom, the accused—Bukom Banku and his son—were boxers, and Prosper Quaye was unemployed, according to Police Chief Inspector Maxwell Ayim, the prosecutor.
All of the defendants, according to the prosecution, were Bukom, a neighborhood close to Jamestown.
According to the prosecution, the complainant heard an odd noise outside his home on November 25, 2022, at around 1730 hours when he was resting in his room.
According to Chief Inspector Ayim, when the complainant awoke, he witnessed the suspects violently assaulting some of his friends, including Julius Tagoe, a witness in the case.
According to the prosecution, the complainant approached them and helped to diffuse the situation.
When Bukom Banku saw the complainant, according to Chief Inspector Ayim, he shattered a bottle and gave it to Mustapha so that he could hurt the man.
According to the prosecution, Mustapha followed the Banku’s advice and gave the complainant’s abdomen a serious incision that bled heavily.
According to Chief Inspector Ayim, Prosper also used a stone to strike a 32-inch Tagoe television with.
The complainant was admitted at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital, according to the prosecution.
Chief Inspector Ayim claimed that despite efforts to have the offenders arrested, nothing was done.
According to the prosecution, criminal summonses to appear in court were prepared and served on the defendants.
