Gyan denies murder allegations
A statement on Asamoah Gyan’s behalf has called allegations in Ghanaian media of killing rapper Castro as ‘wild and absurd’.
The Ghana international had been subject of media reports in his native country that he may have killed friend and Afrobeats artist Castro, after the rapper and friend Janet Bandu were last seen using jet skis on holiday.
Ghanaian media deemed Castro’s (Theophilus Tagoe) death as suspicious, after it was thought the rapper drowned out at sea. Since the rumours have developed, incidents relating to Tagoe’s death have been reported.
Gyan’s brother Baffour has recently had charges of assault dropped, after it was believed he was part of a gang who attacked a journalist who quizzed Asamoah over the incident.
The Al Ain striker was left with little choice but to hold a press conference. As reported by the BBC, the striker said: “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.
“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.”
The statement concluded: “And indeed, the allegation of spiritual sacrifice can by no stretch of the imagination be propped up.”
