Somewhere in July 2014, musician Castro and his girlfriend, Janet Badu, both disappeared while using jet skis during a holiday with Asamoah Gyan’s family and other colleagues at a resort in Ada as reported by GHbase.com.
It would be recalled that rumors linked Gyan, captain of the Black Stars, to the disappearance as some people claimed he murdered Castro for ritual sacrifice. However, to right wrongs, a statement from Gyan’s lawyer, Kissi Agyabeng, described the allegations as absurd.
“We have been silent while these wild allegations and rumours have been peddled in the media. We have been silent not because we are concealing anything or that we do not feel the need to fully state what, from our reckoning, had happened in Ada. We have been silent because we did not want to interfere with police investigations.
“In our painful silence, we have been totally dismayed by the fact that the platform was provided for the peddling of these wild and ludicrous allegations and rumours against us. Those to whom the platform was provided offered no evidence whatsoever to back their statements. And indeed, the allegation of spiritual sacrifice can by no stretch of the imagination be propped up.
“We take the opportunity and state without the slightest doubt in our minds that we are not blamable for the disappearance of Castro and Janet Bandu. We had no hand in that occurrence. We have no moral or legal culpability whatsoever. None of us rode out into the open estuary with Castro and Janet Bandu. Castro rode out there on his own volition and none of us have the slightest idea as to what happened to them.”
Well, from the horse own mouth, Asamoah Gyan in an interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso known in our showbiz circle as Delay has stated vehemently that he never sacrificed Castro spiritually to enhance his career as it was earlier speculated.
In the interview below, Gyan narrated what happened a day before Castro’s demise and the very day the unfortunate incident occurred.
