The Gyan brothers, Baffour and Asamoah have insulated themselves of any blame in the disappearance of Hiplife artiste, Castro and Janet Bandu on July 6.
Castro, born Theophilus Tagoe and his lady friend Janet Bandu disappeared while holidaying at Ada in the Greater Accra Region in July this year with Black Stars’ captain, Asamoah Gyan and a few of his friends.
The incident occurred when the two were on a jet-ski ride on the Volta River near Aqua Safari, a beach resort at Ada.
Subsequently, there were media reports and speculations that Asamoah Gyan had ‘sacrificed his friend, Castro spiritual purposes, to enhance his career.
Nonetheless, Gyan and his family have been silent on the matter for but at a press briefing in Accra on Wednesday, the Gyan family finally broke their silence by narrating circumstances which led to the disappearance of the two.
The family stated categorically that “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.”
They acknowledged that their long silence on the issue seemed to have fueled the media speculations saying, “perhaps, we should have come out earlier.”
The family insisted that Asamoah Gyan and his brother; Baffuor “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.”
“We have only been guess working and conjecturing and making what appears to us to be intelligent deductions – in light of the facts available to us, especially the fact that when they rode out on the Jet Ski Janet Bandu was not wearing a life jacket,” they added.
