And the award for the most bizarre story of the year goes to….
Ex-Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan will hold a press conference today (Wednesday) to deny claims that he used a friend of his, rapper Castro, as a human sacrifice.
Castro and Janet Bandu went on a July holiday with Gyan and his family. However, they went missing during the trip and were believed to have drowned.
The bodies of the deceased never turned up, leading to suggestions that Gyan used the pair for a human sacrifice.
It is an absolutely ludicrous situation, but Gyan’s representatives feel there is a need for a press conference to put the rumours to bed. The following statement was released on the striker’s official website:
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.
Stay tuned to Pundit Arena for the latest in this bizarre turn of events.
