He describes his death as a big lost to the family.

“Henry Flomo’s death is unbelievable and a big lost to the family”, Patrick Flomo laments.

The late Henry Flomo worked for the Liberia Broadcasting Corporation ELBC before joining the National Elections Commission (NEC) as communication director.

Several journalists, including the New Dawn Nimba County correspondent, referred to his death as a big loss to the media community, for the cordial working relationship he had with media houses while at the NEC.

Also speaking on behalf of the National Elections Commission, Head Trainer James Wallie, said Henry’s sudden death is a big loss to the institution.

Mr. Wallie said Henry was not sick, so news about his death came as surprise.

Meanwhile, a group Diaspora Alert (DA) extends its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the late Journalist Henry Flomo, who passed away under mysterious circumstances, saying “Our hearts go out to those affected by this sudden and irreparable loss. DA stands with you in this difficult time and is committed to seeking truth and justice in Flomo’s honor.”

DA calls on the Government of Liberia to finance an independent autopsy by an internationally licensed pathologist to establish the cause of death.

It says there are reports that shortly prior to his unfortunate and demise, the Henry was involved in a toxic exchange with some individuals in Ganta over the recent elections with threats issued on his life.

SA notes that circumstances surrounding the journalist’s death raise serious concerns about press freedom, safety, and potential foul play, thus calling for an independent autopsy to ensure transparency, accountability, and truth.
