Lawyer Maurice Ampaw, who claimed he had information about the whereabouts of Theophilus Tagoe also known as Castro and Janet Bandu, now says “I don’t know where Castro is.”
According to him, it was a misreport by a section of the media which suggested that he said he knew the whereabouts of the two persons who disappeared on the shores of Ada.
Castro and Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan were at the Aqua Safari, a beach resort in Ada, together with some friends in July, 2014, for recreation when the musician (Castro) went jet skiing.
Reports were that Castro might have drowned while trying to save Janet who was alleged to have fallen off the bike.
“If I knew where Castro was, why should I wait for end of September?” Mr. Ampaw questioned.
He had indicated that he would be presenting his investigations into the matter to the police at the end of September, this year.
Mr. Ampaw has been invited by the police to help with investigations because of his assertions in the media that he knew the location of Castro and Janet.
He confirmed to Joy News’ Kwakye Afreh Nuamah that he has been contacted by DSP Cephas Arthur and Director in-charge of the Homicide Unit to help the police in their investigations and indicated he would honour it.
He had called for two types of investigations – search and intelligence gathering and investigations into the sudden disappearance of the two persons.
The Director General of the police CID, COP Prosper Kwame Agblor said at a news conference Monday that “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.
“It’s 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.”
Mr. Ampaw said “I think I want to say kudos to the Ghana Police. They are doing a great job and I think that it is the duty of every citizen to respond to the call of the police to help police in their investigations.”
“And as a citizen, I think I owe the nation a duty; the police a duty to help in the investigations so it’s a call in the right direction,” he added.
He continued he would be glad to go out there to assist the police in whatever capacity to give them the needed information.
He also assured the police he would share his legal experience with them as to how best they could all unravel the mystery behind Castro and Janet’s disappearance.
