A radio presenter, identified as Itiat Zion, has lost his life after gunmen reportedly shot him around a hotel on the Muritala Muhammed Road, in Calabar, Cross River State.
UGAMATV gathered that the victim was waiting by the roadside to get a vehicle back home on Saturday when the gunmen appeared in a vehicle and shot him at the bus stop.

The PPRO said, “We got the news; we learnt that it was a case of mistaken identity. However, we don’t believe it and we have commenced investigation into the matter.”
