The management of Zylofon Cash, a subsidiary of Zylofon Media has confirmed two staff of the company were part of the eight persons, who died in an accident at Tamale on Friday, 29 June 2018.
The company in a statement expressed shock and commiserated with the bereaved families.
Zylofon Cash also pleaded with the public to stop sharing pictures of the deceased persons in the conditions in which they were after the accident because it is “unethical” and increasing their agony.
The accident involved fans of hiplife artiste Fancy Gadam.
The award-winning musician was scheduled for a musical show on Saturday, 30 June 2018 together with his Nigerian counterpart Patoranking at the Alui Mahama Sports Stadium. Hundreds of his fans flooded the streets of Tamale on motorbikes to welcome him from the Tamale airport and got involved in the accident.
The staffs of Zylofon Cash staff were part of a team travelling in a convoy to support the concert. A cargo truck veered off its lane and drove into the convoy. It crashed into one of their vehicles and several motor bikes in the process.
Below is the full statement from Zylofon Cash:
We are in deep pain and shock as we express our condolence to the families of all persons who lost their lives during the accident that occurred in Tamale Friday evening.
A cargo truck veered off its lane and drove straight into our convoy. It crashed into one of our vehicles and several motor bikes in the process.
Doctors from the Tamale Teaching Hospital have confirmed that two of our staff members were unable to survive.
There are other casualties and injuries involving the bikers.
We are in grief and we plead that the continuous sharing of photos of the deceased persons in the condition they were after the accident is unethical and increasing our agony.
We are cooperating with the Police Service in Tamale as investigations continue.
Zylofon Cash is exceptionally grateful to all persons across Ghana and beyond who have called to express their condolence, support and solidarity in many ways from Friday dusk.
We plead for calm as we remain united in grief.
