We are in a new year but the issue of hiplife artist, Castro is sure to remain in the headlines until something substantial comes out of his disappearance case. One of such issues is the rumour gaining grounds that the award-winning artist has been seen in the city of Takoradi and being housed in his parents? house.
Mr. John Eshun, father to the missing musician has shot down such speculations about the sight of his son in the city and being hidden in his room. ?If I should see Castro today I wouldn?t waste a second to call the police and inform them, because I reported to the police about my missing son, so, if I should see him now, it is the police that I will first report to and not to keep him in my room like people are rumoring. He is not in my room,? he claimed.
When the paper brought his attention to the fact that, such a ?wild? rumour could have been arisen due to the family?s over-confidence that their son will definitely return from wherever he is, Mr. Eshun responded; – ?Faith and belief does everything. If you have faith and believe in something, nothing is impossible.?
On the assertion that Castro might have possibly drowned, he stated: ?He was born nearby a water body, so, there?s nothing he doesn?t know about water. If indeed the water body is what is said to have killed or taken him away, I would known about it long ago, considering the interactions I have had with the Police thus far.?
Touching on the varied opinions being peddled around concerning his son, he responded that everyone has the right to share his or her opinion on Castro?s disappearance but the family will not be worried about such discussions, because Ghana is a democratic country were freedom of speech is allowed.
Speaking on the issue about the family organizing a funeral for his son, Mr. Eshun again, rejected such talk by claiming; ?As far as I live, Castro?s funeral will never ever be done. I will take on whoever would want to organize a funeral. I will stop anyone who tries to do that because I strongly believe Castro is not dead.?
He however had high hopes that the Police will surely come up with some positive answers on the whereabouts of his son, who he believes, will return soon.
