It has been three months since the mysterious disappearance of hip-life artiste, Theophilus Tagoe, aka Castro, and Janet Bandu, at Ada in the Greater Accra Region.
Castro’s father, John Eshun, in his first public interview with Sky Power FM in Takoradi, said Castro was just missing but not dead.
According to him, his son had been kidnapped either physically or spiritually, adding, “My son is not dead but has disappeared.”
“This is the first time I am speaking to the public on this issue and I am speaking with deep emotions. I have never stood anywhere to say that my son is dead,” he indicated.
He stressed that what he realised when he visited Ada on that fateful day was that his “son had only disappeared.”
John Eshun pointed out that investigations he conducted indicated that his son was wearing a life jacket, adding that as a mariner himself, he knew that a life jacket, even if it had expired, should enable his son’s lifeless body to float.
He debunked assertions by public interest lawyer, Maurice Ampaw, that close relatives of Asamoah Gyan wanted to bribe the family of Castro to apparently keep mute on the matter.
He described the assertion as outrageous, baseless and senseless, stressing that the issue was bigger than the family, since the whole country could not come to terms with the mysterious disappearance of his son.
He revealed that Asamoah Gyan and his family had been visiting and cooperating with his family on the quiet and therefore “I’d not believe what the lawyer was saying.”
However, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw said the father was being mischievous, as he had been calling on him to assist him find his son, adding that he was shocked Mr Eshun described the assertion as outrageous.
Castro and Janet Bandu went missing during a jet-ski ride at Aqua Safari, a beach resort at Ada, in June this year.
The musician had visited the beach resort with his friend footballer Asamoah Gyan,
After the two went missing, a search part of marine police and some local fishermen was set up but the disappearance remains a mystery.
