The Skipper of the Senior National team, the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, escaped death through divine intervention, but one of his friends in the music industry, Theopihlus Tagoe, popularly known as Castro, is dead.

Reliable information obtained by The Chronicle indicates that Asamoah, Castro, and a lady, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, checked in at the plush Aqua Safari Water Resources at Ada on Friday July 4, 2014, to apparently, entertain themselves.

The Chronicle established that yesterday, Castro and the lady went on an excursion using one of the speed boats at the hotel. When they failed to return within the stipulated time, some of the hotel staff went looking for them, but they could not be found.

They, however, found the boat they were using abandoned, which raised their suspicions that they might have drowned. When contacted, the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Alhassan, confirmed the news to The Chronicle, but said he was yet to be officially informed about the death.

According to him, he had instructed the marine police at Ada to go and search for the hiplife artiste and the supposed girl friend.
