Bash Ali Arrested, Remanded In Prison

One of Nigeria’s most famous boxers, Bash Ali has been
arrested for allegedly causing trouble at a bank premises in Abuja last week Thursday.
Bash Ali who was there to demand from the bank authorities why the directive
from the President to issue some amount of money for the sponsorship of a
Guinness Book of World Record fight has not been met, met his waterloo when the
bank authorities said he was trespassing.
The Bank, Nigerian Export – Import Bank, NEXIM, accused the
boxer of threatening to blow up their premises with a bomb alongside three men
he came along with. The police were called in and the four of them were
arrested and charged for nuisance the following day at an Abuja court after
spending the night at SARS.

Ali however said the reason why the bank has not been
showing so much interest in the project or willing to release the funds was
because they demanded a 10% bribe from him, which he out rightly declined. And now
they are trying to silent me because I have decided to speak out and take
action, he explained.
“I never said I will bomb their office. If any institution
owned by government disobeys the order of Mr. President because of corruption,
that institution should be closed down. That is what I said.”
Hearing on the nuisance and threat to life charges, as well
as Mr. Ali’s bail application, begins on March 4.
