Lazare Adingono (Cameroon National Basketball Coach & Assistant Men’s Coach at Canisius College) has been arrested in Buffalo, USA on a felony charge of second-degree assault and a misdemeanour charge of endangering the welfare of a child, after allegedly using a belt on his four-year-old son’s back, neck and arms at the family home, about 8am on January 15th. His wife, Maureen, then took her son to the hospital for treatment.

The Erie County district attorney’s office is investigating and has yet to determine whether to pursue the case against Adingono. Canisius College Director of Athletics Bill Maher announced that assistant men’s basketball coach Lazare Adingono has been granted a leave of absence to attend to personal matters involving his family.
