Wednesday morning (Jan. 12), gunmen riding in tandem shot and killed a hard-hitting radio commentator who was running for an elective position in a town in Sultan Kudarat.
Jaynard Angeles, 36, of Barangay Matiompong, Lambayong, Sultan Kudarat, a former station manager and radio commentator for Radyo ni Juan FM, died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the police.
According to Allan Freno, Tacurong's information officer, Angeles resigned from Radyo ni Juan FM to run for Lambayong councilor.
Angeles is running under the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP).
Radio DXOM in Koronadal City reported that Angeles was waiting for his car in front of a car repair shop in Barangay New Carmen when he was approached by two men riding tandem on a motorcycle. One of them fired a close-range shot at Angeles.
He died instantly as a result of a bullet wound to the head.
Police investigators are still determining whether the shooting was connected to his work as a radio broadcaster or as a potential political candidate.
The shooting occurred on the fourth day of a nationwide election gun ban's strict implementation.
