Gyan, Baffour Gyan.

Though the reporter in question has dropped the charges against

Baffour, SWAG has urged its members to stay away from the press


"Sports Writers of Ghana is calling on all its members well meaning

sports journalist in Ghana to boycott the press conference to be

organized by the Gyan family in connection with the disappearance of

Castro and other related matters on Wednesday, 24 September at the

Association GJA and the principles of press freedom in the country,"

read a statement by SWAG.

The press briefing is expected to address questions on the

disappearance of Hiplife artiste, Theophilus Tagoe, popularly known as

Castro, who is a close friend of Asamoah Gyan.

The family is also expected to make a statement on Baffour Gyan's

assault case against Daniel Kenu.
