It has been more than 2 months since the bizarre disappearance of Ghanaian Hiplife musician, Castro (real name Theophilus Tagoe) and his alleged girlfriend-Janet Bandu, and we’ve got no real info except that incalculable number of people claim to know their whereabouts.
One of such people, whose claims have amounted to nothing, is Maurice Ampaw – a private legal practitioner.
Lawyer Ampaw made various claims last month, saying he knows the whereabout of Castro, citing 30th September, 2014 as the deadline for the revelation of his assertions. When Ampaw was contacted on the said date, he emphatically told Ghanaians that he owes nobody explanation.
According to him, he had reported and made his claims available to the police so there’s no need of informing the public (as opposed to his earlier statements).
In relation to this, ASP Benefo Darkwa – PRO for Ghana Police Service – this morning spoke on Channel R, an Accra-based radio station.
According to ASP Benefo, Dr. Ampaw visited their outfit somewhere last week and gave them some information. As to the kind of information given, nobody knows because ASP Benefo did not reveal what Dr. Ampaw went to disclose to them. As he put it, the ethics of Ghana Police Service constrain them to put out information given them by a citizen.
However, they are processing the information given to them by Dr. Ampaw to find Castro. He therefore urged all Ghanaians who have any information with regards to Castro’s disappearance to visit their outfit and help them investigate the matter.
Speaking on whether the police will seek the help of ace Ghanaian investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, to find the truth surrounding Castro’s strange disappearance, ASP Benefo said they do not have any idea about that. Nonetheless, when it becomes necessary for them to engage the investigative journalist, the Ghana Police will comment on that.
