The Minister of Youth and Sports Mr Sunday Dare and the World Boxing Champion, Bash Ali have engaged in a dirty fight over alleged N13 million extortion.
Badhi Ali had sent a letter who made the accusation in a letter personally addressed to the sports Minister alleged that Sunday Dare extorted the sum of N13 million from him.
According to him “I must break the JINX that you can’t succeed in Nigeria unless you give BRIBE to government officials. I MUST. Mark my words.”
In reaction to the letter, the Sports Minister, Sunday Dare described Bash Ali as Nigeria’s Blackmailer-in-Chief vowed to drag the Boxer to Court for alleged level defamation.
A statement made available to our correspondent on Sunday by the Minister’s Media Aide, John Joshua Akanji stated that Bash Ali often seeks to have his way with successive Ministers and anyone not supportive of his proposed fight becomes a target of blackmail and verbal attacks.
“For keen followers of the face-off between Bash Ali and the Ministry of Sports, spanning the past 15 years, Bash Ali often seeks to have his way with successive Ministers and anyone not supportive of his proposed fight becoming a target of blackmail and verbal attacks.
“The last four Ministers of Sports, including the current one have not been spared his antics and tirade,” sports Minister’s statement alleged.
