Former Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan has recalled ex-President John Mahama’s massive contribution and his efforts in the search of the late Castro, a renowned Ghanaian musician who disappeared after drowning in the Ada river in 2014.
In the said year, Asamoah Gyan, Castro, together with some other friends of theirs decided to visit the Ada river to catch some fun but an unanticipated misfortune befell them leading to the disappearance of Castro and his supposed girlfriend.
Castro and his supposed girlfriend named Jennifer Bandu, mysteriously disappeared after drowning in the Ada river while enjoying themselves in a jet ski trip.
After the news about the disappearance of Castro and Bandu fell into the social media space, Ghanaians were sent into a state of shock and heartbreak.
As expected, Asamoah Gyan, being of Castro’s closest friends, joined forces with some of Castro’s friends in their quest to rescue the late musician.
Though they were unable to find the body of Castro, Gyan recalled how the ex-President John Dramani Mahama sent a dozen of helicopters to help search for the late Ghanaian artist.
Asamoah Gyan said one thing he remembers in 2014 was that, he called Mahama and informed him about. In response, the former President asked him what he could do to support and he told him to offer any support he could.
According to Gyan, ten helicopters were sent to assist in the search for Castro in less than an hour after his request to the current NDC flagbearer.
