Ace lawyer Dr. Maurice Ampaw has called on the police service to arrest Asamoah Gyan, the skipper of the Black Stars in connection with the disappearance of popular musician Theophilus Tagoe, affectionately called ‘Castro the Destroyer’
The hiplife star was last seen on the Volta estuary when he and Janet Bandu went jet skiing in the waters at Ada on 6 July.
Castro and Black Stars captain, Gyan, were at the Peace Holiday Resort at Ada, together with some friends, for recreation when the unfortunate incident occurred and despite intensive rescue operations the two are yet to be found.
Dr. Ampaw believes the police should arrest the Black Stars skipper and everybody who accompanied them to the place, for them to aid them in their investigations to ascertain the truth concerning the whereabouts of Castro, because he believes their explanations do not sound convincing.
“If Ghana were a serious nation, we wouldn’t have allowed Marine Police to go and have fun on the sea, with the intention of searching for Castro’s body. Then Asamoah Gyan also picked a boat saying he was going to search for Castro, this would not happen in a serious country,” he told Metro FM.
“For Christ sake, Castro is a celebrity, a star, anybody who was involved should be arrested to enable the person write his statement.
“We are in a country people do not know their right and that is why they are walking freely. I am therefore calling for the arrest of Asamoah Gyan and anybody, who went with Castro to Ada. They should arreste them and be given police enquiry bail, for the investigation to be carried out.”
Gyan captained Ghana during the just ended World Cup finals in Brazil, scoring two goals, but the Black Stars failed to make it out of the group stage of the World Cup for the very first time in their history amidst issues of player agitation, player indiscipline, delay in the payment of appearance fees and the air lifting of money to Brazil.
