Bukom Banku is in the news again but this time around he’s being brought to law for assaulting a hair dresser who refused to kiss him.
The entertainer was arraigned before a Circuit Court on Friday, September 2, for assaulting the complainant, Martha Nelson, and damaging her Nokia phone valued at GH¢40. According to the police, Banku slapped and punched the lady after entering her shop to demand a kiss from her. She rejected his advances and after physically assaulting her, he proceeded to seize her mobile phone and smashed it on the ground.
The cruiser weight boxer is scheduled to re-appear in court on Monday, September 5 to answer the charges. The controversial boxer has developed a reputation as a jail-bird after escaping many domestic violence charges without attracting a prison term.
After a similar incident in March this year, Banku was arraigned and granted bail after he allegedly assaulted three women after one of them rejected his sexual advances.
