Zylofon Cash, a subsidiary of Zylofon Media Group has today June 30 made a press release on the road accident that involved their staff members and fans of Ghanaian Tamale-based artist Fancy Gadam in the Northern Regional capital Tamale yesterday June 29.
The accident occurred after fans of the “Total Cheat” hit-maker collided head-on with a moving long truck. Reports had further indicated that members of Zylofon staff were also involved in the incident.
The press release read as follows:
“We are in deep pain and shock as we express our condolences 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 motorbikes 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.”
There were reports that at least 9 people had died and about 20 others injured.
Zylofon Cash has now confirmed 2 members of their staff were involved.
Artist Fancy Gadam has meanwhile canceled the concert that was scheduled for later today, June 30.
