Willy Thomas Death – Dead: PCF Grantee Willy Thomas Obituary, Cause of Death

We lost a great friend, ally and beautiful human today. Willy Thomas was more than life, a passionate conservationist, artist and media guru. We will miss him so but we cherish his accomplishments into the illegal trade and conservation of west Africa’s pangolins.

A giant of broadcast journalism in Nigeria passed yesterday morning and Twitter is silent. A close friend of his, who has been my Distinguished Consultant, notified me expecting me to have heard. I scouted though the internet… Can we stop to pay homage to Mr. Willy Thomas.

A Nigerian broadcaster and founder of Cowrie FM Radio Station, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Willy Thomas, is dead.
Mr Thomas died in the early hours of Thursday.
His death was confirmed by the former President of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lanre Ogundipe.

The deceased, who worked at the Ogun State Broadcasting Corporation as a DJ/Producer, and later with Radio Germany, was said to have died while being rushed to the hospital, following a sudden health challenge.

Mr Thomas returned from Germany some years ago to establish a community radio station, Cowrie FM, in Ogun State.

He was said to be in his 70’s.

As the news of his death spread in Abeokuta, his colleagues and friends rushed to his private residence in the town to commiserate with the family.

A broadcaster who worked together with the deceased at the Ogun State Broadcasting Corporation, Sesan Ekisola, was one of the visitors to Mr Thomas’ residence.
