Nigerian Boxing Ambassador, World Boxing Federation (WBF) cruiserweight champion, Bashiru Lawrence Ali, OON, has again called on the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare to put necessary things in place in the organisation of the first Guinness Book of World Record Boxing Championship which holds in Nigeria very soon.

In a letter sent to the minister of sport Bash Ali stressed the need and benefits of such world tournament to Nigeria and the World.

Here is the press release,

RE: BASH ALI’S GUINNESS WORLD BOXING PROJECT.
Out of the 8 billion people in the world only two boxers are qualified to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) Book as the OLDEST to fight for a World Boxing Title.

The No 1 is your brother and a Great Patriot, Bash Ali. OON of Nigeria.

The No 2 is Evander Holyfield of the United States of America (USA). On Fight Night,
I will also rewrite Boxing History as the OLDEST Boxer to defend his World Title.
The Boxing Record Book is there for additional information.
Sir, a GWR Boxing Championship Fight has NEVER held outside of the USA so the Bash Ali GWR Fight would be the FIRST and on the soil of Africa, and to be exact, on the soil of our great country, Nigeria.

On May 21, 2019, the Federal Government inaugurated the above Local Organizing Committee to organize in Nigeria this historic event.

Exactly 3 months TODAY, November 4, 2019, I had a meeting with you in the presence of many of your head of departments. Apart from telling me about President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to meet with me to discuss the above historic fight, we also agreed to settle out of the Appeal Court so we can plan how to successfully organize this historic Event in Nigeria. On November 6, 2019, my lawyers reached an agreement with your lawyers to settle the case outside of the Court as directed by you.

President Mohammadu Buhari

Sir, almost 3 months after the Agreement and almost 9 months after the inauguration of the LOC nothing POSITIVE has happened.

Sir, despite being Financially broke and several JUICY offers to fight outside of Nigeria, despite all these unnecessary FRUSTRATIONSiin and despite several foreign negative articles trying to rubbish Nigeria and kill my spirit about my quest to host in Nigeria this historic event, I will NEVER GIVE UP ON MY COUNTRY, NIGERIA.. See the attached article 5 of the December 17, 2008, New York Times.

Sir, I am an athlete and time is not my pal. If there is any obstacle or obstacles in the way of our out of Appeal Court Agreement, let me know TODAY so we can find a solution, please. I am more interested in the Honor, Glory and Financial Growth that this historic Event would attract to our Great country than to allow anything TRIVIAL to stop us.

Sir, I will once again conclude by repeating what I have said before in my previous letters to you: Sir, apart from President Muhammadu Buhari, you are the only other person that can help me make this historic event a reality in our great country, Nigeria, so help me, please.

Bash Alli

Sir, I am respectfully asking for the following:
My Prayers:
1. That you move with DELIBERATE SPEED to approve the terms of our out of Appeal Court settlement on your table so your lawyers can withdraw the matter from Court to pave the way for the hosting of the FIRST Guinness World Record Boxing Championship Fight on the soil of Africa.
2. That you move with DELIBERATE SPEED to restore my security and
relocate me to the Official Hotel for this historic Fight.
3. That you move with DELIBERATE SPEED to arrange for me a courtesy
visit to President Buhari to show my appreciation by officially presenting to him the Guinness World Record Boxing Fight souvenirs and a SPECIAL BOXING GLOVE to KNOCKOUT CORRUPTION in Nigeria.
Thanks.
Respectfully submitted for your urgent ACTION.
Yours Truly,
Building a Better and a More Profitable Nigeria Through Sport.
Bash Ali. OON.
World Boxing Champion.

Herdsmen stabbed Man To Death For Killing Cow In Lagos

Published

on

Killed Cow and Commercial bus involved.

There was commotion in the Agbo Malu Agemoowo area of Lagos-Badagry expressway as two suspected herdsmen stabbed a commercial bus driver to death.

The two people said to be the herders have been arrested in connection with the incident by the police in the state.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the image maker of the state police, confirmed the death but fail short to confirm the identity of the killed person.

A commercial LT bus was said to be on a high speed in the area when it crashed into one of the cows, crossing to the other side of the road.

An argument was said to have ensued between the commercial bus conductor and the herdsman which resulted in the herdsman stabbing the driver to death.

The incident created an instant reaction from residents of the area who blocked the expressway and threatened to avenge the death of the deceased man.

The situation caused serious traffic gridlock on the dilapidated road forcing many motorists to find alternative routes.

A resident of the area, George, said “It happened in the morning around 7 o’clock. I had just passed the area when my wife called me. I learnt that the driver was on a high speed when two herdsmen were trying to cross their cows to the other side of the road.”

He also added that “The vehicle was badly damaged and in the process, a fight ensued and the conductor was stabbed in the head and other parts of his body.”

The police image maker confirmed that “A commercial vehicle ran into two cows this morning at Agemowo, Badagry killing one of the herders’ cows.”

The Lagos police spokesperson also stated that “The cattle herders attacked someone they mistook for the vehicle conductor, resulting in his death. The DPO Morogbo division assisted by soldiers from 243 Battalion, Badagry successfully cleared the road and normalcy has since been restored to the area.”

The Lagos police image maker also denied that “It is entirely false that the deceased was turned back when he sought refuge in the police station. He did not make it off the accident scene, let alone, reach the station,” he added.

“Meanwhile the two herders have been arrested. An investigation is ongoing. Updates will be provided subsequently,” the police image maker said.
