The late Liberian journalist, Zenu Miller

A Liberian journalist and employee of OK FM 99.5, Zenu Miller is dead. He died this afternoon at a local hospital following a brief illness.

Zenu had been complaining of chest pain since he was reportedly manhandled by officers of the Executive Protection Service late January at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium during the National County Sports Meet.

While the cause of his death is yet to be made public, Zenu had been complaining of chest pain since he was manhandled by officers of the Executive Protection Service late January at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Sports Stadium during the National County Sports Meet.

He served as editor; talk show host and news director at Truth FM 96.1, owned by Liberian businessman. Musa Bility, and T-Five radio station of Representative Thomas Fallah.

He also worked at the Lone Star Cell Communications Incorporated and OK FM99.5 in Monrovia – where he worked until his demise.

It can be recalled that Mr. Miller was reportedly flogged during the final football match of the 2020 National County Meet between Nimba and Grand Kru Counties at Samuel Kanyon Doe Sport Complex on January 26, 2020.

“I was attacked tonight at the SKD [“Samuel Kanyon Doe” Stadium] by EPS [Executive Protective Service] officers in the full view of the EPS director. Gosh!!!” Zenu Miller posted on his Facebook page.

The Executive Protective Service (EPS) is President George Weah’s elite security forces.

Miller complained that he suffered severe pains in the chest and legs as a result of the assault, forcing him to seek medical treatment.

Several Liberian journalists took to the social media on Saturday expressing their regrets and sympathies for the passing of one of their colleagues.

Detail of the death of this Liberian journalist will be posted in our subsequent news posting
