Mustapha before his death

Family relations of the deceased Upper West Regional correspondent of Metropolitan Television (Metro TV), a leading private free to air television station in Ghana, Mustapha Susolo, are outraged with management of the station for neglecting him prior to his death.

They have indicated that the station is not worth dying for, considering the magnitude of treatment meted out to the late Mustapha. They accused the station of of neglecting their son when he needed them most until his untimely death on the July 22, 2013.

The family is particularly incensed that the deceased sustained serious bodily injuries in the line of his duty as a reporter when he accidentally fell from a storey building in an attempt to take video shots of ?dawadawa? trees for a story on its production and benefits to households in the Upper West Region.

The said story they indicated was his last he filed for the station even while nursing the injuries before his untimely death.

According to the family head, Yahaya Yakubu, their beloved son suffered severe injuries and had to undergo surgery and POP for several weeks without staff or a single? management member visiting him until his untimely death a month ago.

?This is a complete neglect without any show of concern from his employers,? he added.

With erupted feelings of grief and anger,? the family head explained to DAILY GUIDE that what is even mind-boggling and painful was the fact that no representative from Metro TV was present at burial, the seventh day ?Adua? and the 40 th day funeral rites in Bugubele in the Sissalla East District of? the Upper West Region.

He commended the Upper West branch of the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) for their immense support during the burial and the 40 th funeral rites.

Immediate younger brother of the deceased Wisikandi Hudu Tahiru told DAILY GUIDE that not even a single mention was made of his brother?s death on any of Metro TV?s programmes wondering why they could be that heartless towards an employee who gave up his best to the station.

Tahiru insisted that management was adequately informed about his unfortunate accident and even about his death.
