The court hearing of the case against controversial Ghanaian boxer, Braimah Kamoko, also known as Bukom Banku, has been rescheduled to next Monday, September 12th.
The boxer was arraigned for allegedly assaulting a hairdresser, and he appeared in court around 8:00am Tuesday, to meet the absence of the trial Judge, Marian Afful, who was not available to adjudicate the matter.

According to the police, Bukom Banku entered the shop of the complainant, Martha Nelson, and demanded a kiss from her. After her refusal to kiss him, the boxer allegedly slapped and punched the lady.
After the physical assault, he snatched her phone and crashed it on the ground. Bukom Banku subsequently said he would replace her phone with a Galaxy.
Bukom Banku’s history of assaults
This is the latest allegation of assault brought against the controversial boxer who has had previous run-ins with the law, but without any of them ending in a prison term.
In March 2016, he was arraigned and granted bail for allegedly assaulting three women after one of them rejected his request for sex.
Bukom Banku, in October 2015, allegedly used a cutlass to assault one Michael Abbey; a resident of Akoto Lantey in Accra, but he again went scot-free.
Further back in January 2015, he was also arrested for allegedly inflicting physical harm on some persons after a disagreement at the ‘Kpashimo’ procession at Gbese in Accra.
