First of all, Castro is not dead, he is missing; as to whether he will be found alive or dead, no one can pronounce that, until proven otherwise with his body.
The Westside Legacy, a pet project of Theophilius Tagoe aka Castro de Destroyer is an organization which seeks to bring the Western Region Artistes under an umbrella to foster unity and help each other to the pinnacle of the Showbiz ladder. Some Administrators of Westside Legacy were designated by the CEO of Skyy Group of Companies, Mr. Wilson Arthur to Ada to gather authentic information and offer support of any type to those who are already there.
Those who were designated by owner of Skyy Power FM are Nana Kwesi Coomson (PRO of Westside Legacy), Prince Jaidy Derby (CEO of Westside Legacy), Sleeky Vyrus (Cordinator of Westside Legacy) and Nero X (Artiste/Winner of Born Stars). This piece is the real account of the Westside Legacy crew who are at the Peace Holiday Resort. This is directed to refute the falsehood in the media because if there is a deliberate and orchestrated attempt to deceive the public with unsubstantial allegations, it must be thwarted immediately.
ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED
Asamoah Gyan, Castro and their friends were lodging at the Acqua Safari Hotel in Ada when they arrived at the holiday city and were later transferred to the Peace Holiday Resort. On Sunday 6th July, 2014 when the unfortunate event happened, Asamoah Gyan was in a boat cruising on the Volta River whilst Castro was jet skiing on the same water body. Castro cruised on the river for a while and got closer to where Janet Bandu was sitting with her friends when Janet jumped at the back of Castro’s jet ski and both were jolly skiing on the river.
They cruised far beyond anyone’s visual reach. One white man who owns an island at the place saw the empty Jet Ski afloat near his island. He called Peace Holiday Resort to inform them that an empty Jet Ski was afloat near his island when they told him it belongs to Acqua Safari Hotel. Reaching Acqua Safari, they noticed that, that was the Jet Ski Castro was using and the search for Castro began because their attention was drawn to the fact that he was not in his hotel room neither was he anywhere close.
It is never true that Janet fell in the river and when Castro was trying to rescue her, he also drowned. As it stands, no one saw how they ‘vanished.’ As to whether the jet ski capsized or Janet fell and Castro was trying to rescue her like the media has it, they are all speculations; no one saw them when they left the Peace Holiday Resort vicinity.
There is tight security at the Peace Holiday Resort restricting people from entering the premises since people who visit the place often spew false information to the media and friends which become the basis of major reports in the media.
There is an intensive search on the Volta River and the sea for the two bodies (Castro and Janet Badu). As at now, rescuers have been deputed by Asamoah Gyan and Castro’s family to search for the two.
Janet Bandu’s family was also at the Peace Holiday Resort yesterday. Her elder Sister and Uncle were there to offer support to those there.
The Westside Legacy is still at the Hotel premises awaiting a positive result. The general environment at the Peace Holiday Resort is one of optimism as family and friends of the two embark on prayer services daily.
Westside Legacy can confidently say that until the family comes out to announce anything about the two, the media are only speculating, please note that and treat any news in the media about them beneath contempt.
