Bash Ali Sues Sports Minister For Alleged Assault, Demands N1bn Compensation

Boxing cruiserweight champion, Bashiru Ali, has dragged the Minister of Sports and Social Development, Solomon Dalung, to court for an alleged assault.

Bash Ali filed a civil suit at an Abuja High Court seeking N1bn damages from the minister for the injuries he allegedly suffered when Dalung’s aides beat him up in Abuja about two weeks ago.

other respondents in the suit are the Inspector-General of Police; the
minister’s aides, Nansel Nimyel, Charles Boga, and one Mr. Joseph.

The boxer said:

“I was unconscious for about an hour until the ministry sent for paramedics who then carried me in a stretcher to the ministry’s staff clinic where I was given first aid treatment and when they saw that I was in extreme pains, I was immediately transferred to the Emergency Ward of the National Hospital where I stayed for about eight hours before I was rushed to the Trauma Department at National Hospital where I spent two days.”

Ali is also seeking an order of the court “compelling the respondents  to pay to the applicant the sum of N1bn only as compensatory damages and public apology in two national newspapers for the breach of his fundamental human rights  to his dignity as a person on 13th of February, 2017.
