Nigerian Boxing Champion, Bash Ali Lands In Kuje Prison by pendy79: 4:37pm On Feb 23, 2015
The running battle between Nigeria’s World Boxing Federation, WBF, cruiserweight boxing champion, Bashiru Lawrence Ali, a.k.a. Bash Ali (OON) and the Managing Director of NEXIM Bank, Robert Orya has landed the Edo State-born pugilist in Kuje Prison in Abuja.

Bash Ali has several times alleged that Orya demanded a bribe of $10 million out of the $30m which President Goodluck Jonathan had asked the bank to release to the Local Organising Committee, LOC, of the Guinness Book of World Records fight which the boxer plan to stage in Nigeria.

Bash Ali said: “On Wednesday, 18 February, NEXIM Bank’s Executive Director, Customer Service, Bashir Wali invited me for a chat, while waiting, the MD, Robert Orya, who on 6 May 6, 2014 asked for a private chat which I turned down drove in, saw me and members of the LOC and ordered security to beat us up. The security men broke the head of our driver and damaged the vehicle.”

According to the boxer, he and some members of the LOC were arrested by the police and taken to the Federal Secretariat Command of the force in Abuja and were later transferred to the FCT Command before being finally taken to SARS on the same Wednesday.

“On Thursday we were arraigned at the Magistrate’s Court, Cotonou Street at Wuse Zone 6. At the end of the proceedings the Chief Magistrate agreed to grant me bail of N1 million with surety of a Level 10 Federal worker, which I refused. This forced the police to remand me at Kuje Prison till 4 March when the case will come up again.

“Fellow Nigerians, is this how we will allow corruption to continue in our dear country?” said Bash Ali through a text message he sent out at the weekend.

P.M.NEWS Sports gathered from a police source that Bash Ali is being tried for criminal trespass, obstruction in public way, wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation, contrary to Sections 79, 85, 348, 194, 266 and 397 of penal code.

The source said that Ali was arrested on Wednesday at about 2p.m after one Mr. Bisong Peter of NEXIM Bank reported him at the Central Police Station. He was arrested alongside five others when he trespassed into the premises on the bank, using a bus to block the entrance into the building, thereby restricting staff from getting into their offices.

jonaTAN gave him a share of the national cake and someone wants to share it with him forcefully and he is saying no.

"Bash Ali has several times alleged that Orya demanded a bribe of $10 million out of the $30m which President Goodluck Jonathan had asked the bank to release to the Local Organising Committee, LOC, of the Guinness Book of World Records fight which the boxer plan to stage in Nigeria"

and you want him to keep quiet?

What is Jonathan giving $30 million dollars of Nigeria's money to a geriatric boxer for? Especially during these trying economic times. Na wa o. The president must hate this country to be wasting scarce resources like that.

I hope Bash Ali has evidence for his claims. If yes then the Hashtag will be #FreeBashAli


Abians have started rejecting the attempts to bribe them with morsels of food and little cash by visionless and planless Guber candidates of the APGA and PDP parties. They are demanding for each candidate to lay down his plans for Abia because Abians are not beggers.
The shocker has just begun.

Labor party all the way.

You dey talk like say you no dey 9ja, you need to know what obtains in government circles at the moment.

The civil service is a shadow of itself now. Senators amd reps are bribed to shoot up budgetary allocations to ministries and agencies with the promise of juicy contracts they will either sell to third parties or they collect the money and never do the job. Guess who does oversight function to those agencies and ministries? Same people who pep up the budgets in the first place.

Nigeria is in real trouble and I hope wise counsel prevail in the country.
