Do our celebrities know Castro's whereabouts?

July 6th was a tragic day for our dear brother, Theophilus Tagoe, 32, also known as “Castro”, who drowned at Ada alongside Janet Bandu, 24. Castro's disappearance was a shock to the people of Ghana and the world at large.
Ghanaians prayed fervently for Castro's safe return but after several days of searching by the Ghana Marine Police, hopes were dashed.
The mystery of Castro's disappearance has resulted in numerous theories. Akoo Nana, Okyeame Kwame, prophets and fetish priests are some of the characters spinning these theories.
On July 10, 2014, a self-acclaimed prophet claimed Castro's disappearance was a confirmation of his prophesies from two years ago. In his Sowutuom church, the prophet claimed he told Castro to avoid contact with bodies of water. Allegedly, the prophet laid his hands on his head and prayed for Castro.
Recently, Okyeame Kwame predicted Castro could be found in Togo. A Ghanaian man who lives in Togo called an FM station in Ghana, claiming to have seen Castro by the shores of the beach in Togo. He added, “I was too scared to get closer to him because I'd heard he was dead and could be a ghost. I asked people around if they knew him but nobody seems not to.”
After the predictions made by Okyeame Kwame, Akoo Nana also gave his version. The story of the disappearance of hip life musician Castro, born Theophilus Tagoe is getting weirder by the day, the latest being a claim by Akoo Nana that the musician is in captivity. He believes some ritualists kidnapped Castro for ritual purposes but discovered that he is not an ordinary person and therefore do not know what to do now.
The question is “is it that they know his whereabouts and want to keep it from us?” What is it that some people know and we don't know? He also attributed the disappearance to traditional reasons, speculating that when chiefs and fetish priests die, their people kidnap especially strangers who are sacrificed to accompany them.
Despite, the theories surrounding his disappearance, one fact remains, Castro was a talented artist who will be missed by the Ghanaian people. There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go.
While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil. Grieving is a necessary passage and a difficult transition to finally letting go of sorrow - it is not a permanent rest stop.
