Hip Life act Castro, and his female friend Janet Bandu, will be legally ‘declared dead’ in July 2021, after they disappeared on a Jet Ski on the Ada River, seven years ago.
By law in Ghana, an individual can be declared dead by a court after seven years of disappearance.
The Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33, states that a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.
After July 6, 2021, Castro and Janet will be considered as departed souls. They are no longer part of the living by laws of Ghana.
