BY Thomas Domah / Nimba County

 An officer of the National Security Agency (NSA) assigned at the Ganta- Guinea border has allegedly committed suicide in LPMC’s bye-pass community, Ganta City, Nimba County.

Prior to the incident, the deceased was slapped with three months’ suspension amid serious pressure from home, a source told the NEW DAWN.

The late Mazolay Karnay, 57, was a father of nine children and former fighter of the disbanded rebels NPFL of jailed former President Charles Ghankay Taylor.

The incident occurred recently, when President George Weah was due in Nimba for an endorsement.

The death of Mazolay Karnay brings to two, number of state security lifeless bodies discovered in Nimba.

Last year, one of President Weah’s security officers allegedly committed suicide in Tappita, Lower Nimba County when he reportedly shot himself. since then, reasons behind the said action has not been established.

The latest incident involving an NSA officer has created panic among residents of the county.

Few weeks ago, a 38-year-old businessman, Chris Suah, who went missing, was found dead in a bush near Ganta City.

In early 2022, during President Weah’s county tour, an officer of the Police Support Unit (PSU) reportedly committed suicide around the Jackson Fiah Doe Memorial Referral Hospital in Tappita, Lower Nimba.

Meanwhile, several citizens of Nimba, including self-proclaimed god- father Senator Prince Johnson, Senator Jeremiah Koung and the chairperson for the re-election of President George Weah in Nimba, former superintendent David Dorr Cooper and a group of aggrieved CDCians expressed disappointment and frustration in the Weah administration, calling on fellow Nimbaians not to support Mr. Weah’s second term bid.

Senator Johnson, once a strong supporter of President Weah, has accused the President of not appointing more Nimbaians in government, but rather Southeasterners.

PYJ recently announced his departure with President Weah and said his political party, the MDR, will not support the President’s bid for a second term in office.

But Nimba senatorial hopeful Nya Twayen, Jr., described Senator Johnson’s decision as belated.

Mr. Twayen described PYJ as a self-center person, who only advocate for himself and his family rather than citizens of the county, who voted him.

According to him, Senator Johnson’s 18 years of leadership in the Liberian Senate has not impacted lives of Nimbaians. Editing by Jonathan Browne
