Central Regional Communications Director of the governing National Democratic Congress [NDC], Allotey Jacobs has expressed worry at the way and manner the media is treating the misfortune of renowned Hip-life artiste, Castro.
He described as “unethical” for the media to publicly declared Castro dead whiles his body is yet to be found.
The Marine division of the Ghana Police is said to be working tirelessly to find the “Ghana Girls” hit maker and his female friend, Janet Bandu, who went missing Sunday while riding a jet ski at Ada.
The two went missing on Sunday after drowning in a Jet Ski accident at Ada where they were partying with some friends including Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan.
Peacefmonline.com entertainment reporter Eugene Osafo Nkansah who was at the scene Monday morning noted that, the Marine Police have deployed its speed boats and other modern equipment in their search and hoping to rescue the duo alive or dead.
Despite the search, sections of the media have already declared the two dead with pictures circulating on social media [Facebook, Watsapp, Twitter, etc.]
Nonetheless, Allotey Jacobs believes instead of Ghanaians to pray for the recue team to find Castro and his alleged girlfriend, they are rather wishing him dead.
He noted that, the behaviour depicts that of politicians who are piqued to see a ruling government deliver.
“Ghanaians are treating Castro like a politician. Why are we declaring him dead whiles he is missing and his body cannot be found?” he questioned.
Adding that, “Just as we cannot wait to see President Mahama perform…that is the same way we can’t wait and pray to hear that Castro is alive”.
He also expressed optimism on Adom FM that the award winning artiste might still be alive.
