- Janet Bandu's father has died out of excessively grieving over his lost daughter
- Bandu disappeared together wih Castro on that fateful day with Asamoah Gyan at the Ada beach
- The sister has revealed that the father always asked "Where is your sister?" even at the point of death
Sister of Janet Bandu, the lady who went missing together with musician Castro, has said their father has died sadly due to the grief of losing his daughter.
Speaking in an interview on Onua FM five years after the incident, sister of Janet, Gifty, said their father died last month while still grieving over his missing daughter.
She added that that the entire family has still not gotten over the loss of Janet.
“My father died on June 7 this year at the 37 Military Hospital. Whenever he sees me, he asks ‘where is your sister?’ and all the grief has led to his demise,” Gifty Bandu said amid tears.
“It hasn’t been easy for the family at all,” the sister said according to a report seen by YEN.com.gh on 3News.com
When asked if they have followed up on the case, Janet Bandu's sister said that her uncle had been in contact with authorities, but there has been no positive news.
Five years ago on July 6, 2014, news broke that musician Castro and Janet Bandu had gone missing while jet skiing in Ada.
The two had gone to Ada in the company of Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan and other friends for a getaway.
Following the disappearance of Janet and Castro, a joint rescue team made up of the Marine Division of the Ghana Police Service, local divers and other security forces embarked on a rescue operation, but their attempts failed as the two were never found.
Per the constitution of Ghana, Castro and Janet Bandu cannot be declared dead if the bodies are not found after seven years, though some close friends and musicians still believe Castro is alive.
Meanwhile, Castro's father is still nurturing the hope that his son is alive.
He has warned Asamoah Gyan and others to stop making remarks suggesting that his son was dead.
The sad father says he would take the right step with the family if their son is not found in seven years.
