Briamah Isaac Kamoko, aka “Bukom Banku”, a Ghanaian Professional Boxer, has been remanded into Police custody by an Accra Circuit Court for one week on the charge of abetment of crime.
He is said to have abetted with one Prosper Quaye to cause harm to one Ismael Quaye at Bukom in the Greater Accra Region.
Bukom Banku was in the dock with one Mustapha Kamoko, his son, who was also facing the charge of causing damage.
Bukom Banku, aged 50 and his son Mustapha Kamoko, have pleaded not guilty.
Meanwhile, their accomplice, Prosper Quaye, a 32-year-old unemployed man, who is being held on the charge of causing unlawful damage, failed to appear before court for his plea to be taken.
The Court, therefore, issued a warrant for his arrest.
Mr Godwin Amoah, counsel for the accused person informed the court that Prosper Quaye was at the court earlier but told him that his tummy was paining him and that he was going to buy some drugs.
Mr Amoah prayed the court for bail for his clients saying that they were family and had people of substance to stand as sureties.
He said they had fixed places of abode and that they were not “fright risk.”
The prosecution opposed the bail application because it was not the first time they had committed such a crime and if granted bail, they would interfere in police investigations.
It also prayed for a bench warrant for the arrest of Prosper Quaye.
The Court presided over by Mrs Adelaide Abui Keddey, therefore, remanded them into Police custody for seven days to reappear on December 19, 2022.
Police Chief Inspector Maxwell Ayim, prosecuting, told the Court that the complainant, Mr Ishmael Neequaye is a footballer residing at Bukom while accused persons (Bukom Banku and his son) were boxers and Prosper Quaye was unemployed.
