Former radioman shot dead in Sultan Kudarat
KORONADAL CITY – A former radio commentator running as a councilor for a town in Sultan Kudarat, was shot dead at past 10 a.m. Wednesday in Tacurong City, a city official said.
The victim, Jaynard Angeles, was a former station manager of Radyo ni Juan in Tacurong City.
Allan Freno, Tacurong information officer, said Angeles had resigned from the radio station to run as councilor of Lambayong town in Sultan Kudarat.
“He was a hard-hitting radio commentator, and his criticisms did not spare politicians,” Freno said in a phone interview.
Angeles was running under the Partido Federal Pilipinas.
On October 30, 2019, the station manager of Radyo ni Juan in Tacurong, Benjie Caballero, was also shot in Tacurong. He died on Dec. 2, 2019 in a hospital.
