Asamoah Gyan holds press conference to deny he used rapper as human sacrifice

Laurence Griffiths

UPDATE: Gyan confirmed at his press conference that he did not kill Castro, for sacrifice or otherwise. So you know.

Asamoah Gyan insists he did not use the rapper Castro as a human sacrifice. And he's having a press conference to clear it up.

Castro and Janet Bandu went missing in July when they were on vacation with Gyan and the striker's family. The assumption was that they drowned in the ocean, but the inability of anyone to find a body has apparently kicked up suspicions in Ghana. And some have begun to suggest that Gyan sacrificed Castro and Bandu.

Gyan has denied these rumors, but they have picked up enough steam that he believes he needs to address them in a press conference.

The Gyan Family will hold a press conference on Wednesday address recent issues of public interest including the disappearance of musical icon Theophilus Tagoe (aka Castro).

The press conference which will take place at the Alisa Hotel will be addressed by counsel for the family Kissi Agyabeng.

It will be recalled that Theophilus Tagoe (aka Castro) and Janet Bandu went missing while on a holiday hangout with Family and Friends of the Gyan's at a resort in Ada back in July.

Relentless efforts are still being made to find the missing duo.

The press conference will therefore seek to update the public through the media on the status of investigations so far.

The opportunity will also be used to officially respond to some allegations and untruths bundled about in the media over the role of Asamoah Gyan in the duo's disappearance.

The press meeting will also touch on the recent court case instigated by the Ashanti Regional editor of Graphic Communications Group Daniel Kenu against Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo.

There will also be an opportunity for the press to ask related questions in a Q&A session during the press meeting.

All media houses are therefore invited to attend this press conference which will begin at 1pm (local time) at the Alisa Hotel in Accra on Wednesday, September 24, 2014.

And that is how allegations of a World Cup player using a rapper as a human sacrifice bubbling to the point that he needed to have a press conference happened.
