Accra District Magistrate’s Court yesterday adjourned to September 12, the case involving the boxer, Braimah Kamoko, affectionately called ‘Bukom Banku’.
That followed the absence of the judge, who was expected to hear the matter, even though Bukom Banku appeared in court with his lawyer , Jerry Avernogbo, likewise the complainant in the matter.
Against this backdrop, the case was adjourned to Monday, September 12.
The boxer was to appear in court on Monday, September 5, however, he failed to show up.
Bukom Banku is alleged to have demanded a kiss from a hairdresser in her shop but she declined, and the boxer slapped her twice and punched her in the rib.
