Though it started as some kind of a hoax on social media, it is becoming threatening at this time because there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
The entertainment industry is really in a state of shock as players are still finding it difficult to come to terms with information that Castro and a lady called Janet Bandu might be dead. In Ghana, issues of this nature means giving the opportunity to some people to come up with serious allegations that might earn them some cheap popularity and media publicity.
In short, this is a scenario of a party gone bad and one should expect Ghanaians to come up with all sorts of stories to satisfy their desires. It happened that Asamoah Gyan had come from Brazil after a not so impressive world cup appearance and decided to de-stress at the beach riding some speed boats in Ada. After two days of having a great deal of fun time at a beach in Ada, unconfirmed reports started coming in that Castro had drowned with a lady believed to be his girlfriend and they are both feared missing and dead.
Since Saturday that the incident happened at Ada, Castro and the lady who is believed to have been identified as Janet Bandu have been reported missing but a section of the media including some family people of Castro are also claiming that Castro is dead.
Unfortunately, they are pronouncing him dead without his dead body and it is making the whole situation hard to understand.
As of last Monday, serious investigations and the search for Castro and Janet’s dead body started by the Marine Police and some traditional authorities including fisher folks who are using their rich experience on sea are doing everything possible to come up with information concerning the dead body of Castro and the supposed girlfriend.
Meanwhile, the father of Castro who gave his name as Uncle Ben has confirmed to Dr Pounds on Pluzz 89.9 fm that they know for real that Castro is dead and that people should take that information from them as final. Meanwhile, Asamoah Gyan and some people who were with Castro and the missing lady are yet to come up with comments or statement on the death or otherwise of Castro and Janet Bandu.
