Bukom Banku (real names Braimah Kamoko) was a defendant at a Circuit Court in Accra on September 2 for proceedings on a case bordering on assault after he allegedly slapped a woman identified as Martha Nelson. The incident happened at a place known as Bukom, a suburb of the Greater Accra Region.
Martha alleged that the boxer entered her shop and demanded for a kiss. According to her account, when she declined, he slapped and punched her, smashing her Nokia phone on the ground and boasting that he will replace the phone with a "Samsung Galaxy."
Bukom Banku is set to appear in court on Monday 5 August 2016.
