The lady suspected to have drowned along with hiplife artiste, Theophilus Tagoe aka Castro in a sea scooter accident at Ada has been identified as 24-year-old Janet Bandu.

Janet is a student at the Mayfair Design School at Cantonments in Accra where she is pursuing a course in fashion and design.

She also featured in a reality TV show dubbed “I’m In Love with Bomaye” on Multi-TV in 2012.

Her father, Staff Sergeant Joe Bandu (retd.) told Asempa FM on Monday that his daughter schooled at Kasoa in the Central region before continuing at Mayfair Design School.

He said the family lives at Kasoa and knew Janet was in school until Sunday when they heard of the incident.

The ex-service man said he had just returned from northern Ghana after attending the funeral of a brother.

He claimed to be hearing conflicting information regarding the daughter about the incident and has since dispatched Janet’s brother to Ada to be able to gather information on what exactly happened.


An uncle of Janet who also spoke to the radio station appealed to the public to dispel negative reports about their daughter that nobody knew where she hailed from.

He said the family was depressed and finding it difficult to entertain such rumours about their daughter.

Castro and Janet were said to have taken one of the sea scooter (Jet ski ) out on a cruise on the Volta Lake when the accident occurred.

Sources said Castro and Janet suffered the accident on the Volta Lake while on a weekend getaway with Black Stars’ striker, Asamoah Gyan who had taken his friends on a boat cruise in Ada.

Gyan is said to usually rent a yacht to entertain close family members and friends whenever he is in town for holidays but the said yacht was unavailable this time around, as it had been sent out for repairs.

The police are searching for the bodies. Their sea scooter has been recovered by police.

Friends have taken to social media to pay tribute to Castro, despite his death not being officially confirmed.
