Police To Invite Laywer Ampaw To Help Find Castro

imagesThe Ghana Police Service has disclosed that it will invite Lawyer Maurice Ampaw to help them unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of the hip life artiste, Castro, who has been missing for more than two months now.

The private legal practitioner, Lawyer Ampaw is reported to have claimed that Castro is alive and he knows his whereabouts.

Theophilus Tagoe, real name of the missing hiplife artiste,Castro disappeared with a lady friend, Janet Bandu during a jet-ski ride at the Aqua Safari beach resort at Ada in the Greater Accra Region.

Castro’s disappearance on July 6, 2014 has kept the nation wondering about what might have happened to the hip-life artiste and his lady friend.

While some people believe that Castro is dead, some claim the hip-life musician might be alive.

An extensive search for the bodies of Castro and his female friend along the beaches of Ada by Marine Police personnel has so far proved futile.

Some spiritualists even joined in the search, saying Castro might have gone for spiritual consultation with the marine spirit – Maame Water.

But speaking at a media briefing today, the Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police, COP Prosper Kwame Agblor pleaded with the Lawyer to make any information to facilitate their investigations known to the police.

“That is why I said anyone who has any information should come to us and volunteer the information. Because I’ve already stated that we are still searching for them. If the lawyer feels that they are not dead. Its in line with what I’ve stated that we are not considering them dead until we find their bodies. So if that lawyer has anything he should come and volunteer the information to us then together we will work to unravel the mystery,” he added.

He also indicated that the police service has involved the International Police (Interpol) in the search.

“We are also in contact with neighbouring countries through Interpol in our investigation. We have requested them to alert us anytime unknown persons who answer to the description of Castro and Janet are found within their borders. Similarly, we have also alerted them to inform us when unknown bodies are found,” he said.

COP Agblor however assured that Asamoah Gyan and his entourage as well as the management of Aqua Safari and Peace resort are helping in the investigation.

Meanwhile the lawyer has said he will disclose any information in his possession to the Police on September 31.
