Asamoah Gyan strongly refutes claims linking him to death of former close friend Theophilus ‘Castro’ Tagoe, Ghanaian striker to address the issue publicly in a press conference
Ghana international, Asamoah Gyan is heavily accused of killing late close friend and rapper, Castro, with whom he did award winning song ‘African Girls’
The ate Castro was involved in a Jet Ski accident in a resort in Ghana where Gyan was with him on holiday, Castro’s girlfriend was also involved in the accident
The girl’s body was found, but until the time of filing this report, Theophilus ‘Castro’ Tagoe’s body is yet to be found since July when the accident occurred, and the rapper’s family suspect foul play
The allegation has gone as far as unrest to Gyan’s family who strongly deny any truth in the rumour and the Al Ain man has scheduled a press conference to address the issue
The Gyan Family held a press conference on Wednesday to address the allegation and other matters of public interest involving the other Gyan brothers.
"It will be recalled that Theophilus Tagoe (aka Castro) and Janet Bandu went missing while on a holiday hangout with Family and Friends of the Gyans at a resort in Ada back in July.
''Relentless efforts are still being made to find the missing duo.
In the conference, lawyer to the Gyan family, Kissi Agyabeng read out the family's position to the press
''On Friday 4 July 2014, Asamoah Gyan, the captain of the national football team (the Black Stars), his elder brother Baffour Gyan (a former Black Stars player), and some of their close friends and associates, checked into Aqua Safari Resort at Ada for a weekend vacation.
''The trip (Safari getaway) itself was not remarkable in any respect, but for the unfortunate events of Sunday 6 July 2014. It was not remarkable because it is the annual practice of the core group that went to Ada to go on a weekend vacation at the end of the football calendar.
''Samuel Anim Addo books the rooms in his name, and he allocates them to Asamoah Gyan’s invitees at his discretion.
''The core group of invitees congregated variously at the Shell station at the Tema Motorway roundabout, from where the team set off.
''The core group had dinner at the restaurant at Aqua Safari Resort and took boat rides on the Volta River thereafter. The boats, numbering three (3), were rented from the resort. The boat rides terminated without incident at about 10:30 p.m. The core group then proceeded to the poolside of the resort for a night barbecue, which ran well into the morning of Saturday 5 July 2014. As is their custom, Asamoah Gyan and Castro entertained guests at the poolside with live singing performances.
''The team checked out of Aqua Safari Resort on Saturday 5 July 2014 and checked into Peace Holiday Resort soon thereafter.
''The core group spent the better part of the incident-free 5 July at Peace Holiday Resort, ending the day with a live band party which also featured, again, performances by the hiplife duo – Castro and Baby Jet (Asamoah Gyan).
''All the riders, including Castro, were provided with and, indeed, wore contraptions intended as life jackets. Castro wore a bright reddish colour of the said contraption.
''Castro rode for the last time from Aqua Safari Resort to Peace Holiday Resort where Baffour Gyan and a few others, including Alberta Tetteh, Nana Akua Ayisi and Janet Bandu were waiting for their turn to take the boat ride to Aqua Safari Resort.
''While the volley ball game was still on, Samuel Anim Addo, was called aside by a staff of Aqua Safari Resort – who informed him that a call had been placed through to Aqua Safari Resort from a resort located in the Tsarleykope area that one of the jet skis belonging to Aqua Safari Resort had been spotted on the Volta River without its occupant(s). A head count showed that Castro and Janet had not returned.
The Gyan Family used the opportunity to officially respond to some allegations and untruths bundled about in the media on other Gyan children.
