Outspoken lawyer, Maurice Ampaw, has caused a stir on social media following an interview he granted Mzgee over comments he made which suggested that Castro’s mother was dejected and now very poor.
While speaking in a telephone conversation with show host Mzgee, Mr. Ampaw was asked to react to comments made by Castro’s mum where she refuted claims that she was now poor and dejected.
Mzgee played an audio recording of Castro’s mother in which she confirmed that she was not poor as she had family members who supported her once a while.
She also claimed that she did not know Maurice Ampaw and had not received anything from him or anyone she did not know.
Adding on, Castro’s mother indicated that Asamoah and Baffour Gyan had not given her any money nor had there come to see her even once after her son disappeared.
However, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw disagreed with Castro’s mother and claimed he knew her and even mentioned the name of someone in Dansoman who can attest to the fact that he knew her.
Maurice Ampaw started to get agitated by the incessant questioning from Mzgee and suddenly flared up.
He tried heckling the Mzgee and claimed she was asking irresponsible and questions on air. He angrily called Mzgee an "irresponsible journalist".
While still ranting, Maurice Ampaw indicated that if Castro's mother was claiming she did not know him (Ampaw), he was giving her the go-ahead to take him on.
He then angrily added that he was going to take Mzgee on and hang up the phone.
Not long ago, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw claimed he had spoken to Castro’s mum and claimed she was now dejected and was struggling to even get money to buy food.
Ia a related development, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the mother of Theophilus Tagoe, famed as Castro who went missing some years ago, has spoken in a recent interview following claims that she was poor and dejected.
While speaking in a radio interview on Onua FM, Castro's mother said claims made by Lawyer Maurice Ampaw to the effect that she was now dejected and poor following her son's disappearance, were false.
She went on to say that she did not know Lawyer Maurice Ampaw and had never seen him in person before.
