Castro Still Missing
Marine Police patroling on the river in search of Castro and Janet
THE TEMA Regional Marine and Port Police, in collaboration with the Ghana Air Force and local fisher folks, yesterday embarked on a fruitless mission in search of hip-life artiste Theophilus Tagoe, known in the showbiz industry as Castro.
Several patrols on the River Volta at Ada by the Marine Police and some volunteers yielded no positive result as the purported missing musician and his girlfriend, whose name was identified as Janet Bandu – former contender in Multi-TV’s Reality Show ‘Am In Love With Bomaye’ – were nowhere to be found.
Fisher folks in the area had abandoned the search for the missing persons because they claimed they did not have fuel to power their outboard motors.
An investigation team from the Tema Regional Police Command, which had taken charge of the case and instituted investigations into the incident, had impounded the jet ski used by the hip-life artiste, to assist in their investigations.
They further called at Aqua Safari at Ada-Foah where Castro, the ace footballer and captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, his (Gyan’s) brother, Baffour Gyan, together with their friends, began their merrymaking last Friday.
Police proceeded to Peace Holiday Resort, also at Ada, where the merrymakers are currently lodging, and held closed-door meetings with managements of both facilities as well as the Stars’ captain.
The Air Force has dispatched two helicopters to patrol the river at Azizanya around the estuary in an attempt to locate the persons either dead or alive.
Chief Superintendent Owusu Bekoe, Director in charge, Marine and Port, speaking to DAILY GUIDE, said that the rescue mission had yielded no results.
According to him, they received distress information of a lifeless body washed ashore at Anyagui near Keta in the Volta Region, and hurriedly went to the place only to realise that the lifeless body was not that of Castro’s nor Janet’s.
He said the Marine Police, besides collaborating with other agencies in search of the missing hip-life musician and his alleged girlfriend, had also been partnering some local fisher folks for any clue that could lead to the discovery of the two.
Chief Superintendent Owusu Bekoe explained that the search would continue until they find them. He believed this might take about two or three days since no clue had been found so far.
He added, ‘He may have given up the ghost due to the situation at hand currently and may take two days or more to find him.’
He complained of lack of logistics claiming they were using only one speed boat and appealed for aid and logistics.
