Superstar Ghanaian footballer Asamoah Gyan has confirmed that singer Castro has indeed died.

Castro had gone missing 3 years ago, along with a female friend named Janet Bandu. The duo had been on a holiday trup with Asamoah and Baffour Gyan.

He’s not yet officially regarded as dead in Ghana, as missing person are only declared dead if they remain missing for 7 years.

“For me I was there, my entourage were there, from what the person said and from what I observed, i can strongly say that under (Castro) is dead because i was there,” Gyan said in an interview on Ghanaian show, The Delay Show.

He added that Castro’s death was confirmed to him by two different Oracles in Ada he consulted after the disappearance.

In the weeks that followed the incident, Gyan was repeatedly accused of using Castro for a ritual sacrifice. A year after the incident, he released a statement.

The statement read: “What sells in the media, and what indeed sold and is still selling in the media in Ghana are wild allegations and rumours directed especially at Asamoah Gyan – ranging from the absurd – of the imputation of criminality to him in the sense that he either murdered Castro or had him kidnapped – and ending with the ludicrous – that he sacrificed him spiritually to enhance his career.

“We have been silent while these wild allegations and rumours have been peddled in the media.

“We have been silent not because we are concealing anything or that we do not feel the need to fully state what, from our reckoning, had happened in Ada. We have been silent because we did not want to interfere with police investigations and recently the leveling of assault charges against Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo, sealed our mouths further.

“Now, we can come out openly because the police have stated their position and the assault charges against Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo have been dropped and they have been discharged. We will revisit this matter.

“In our painful silence, we have been totally dismayed by the fact that the platform was provided for the peddling of these wild and ludicrous allegations and rumours against us.

“Those to whom the platform was provided offered no evidence whatsoever to back their statements. And indeed, the allegation of spiritual sacrifice can by no stretch of the imagination be propped up.”
