The mutilated body of Martinez Zogo, a prominent Cameroonian journalist was discovered on Sunday, January 22, 2023 near Yaounde, five days after he was kidnapped, the press union and a colleague said on Sunday.



Zogo, the director of private radio station Amplitude FM, was abducted on January 17,2023 by unknown assailants after trying to enter a police station to escape his attackers.



Zogo had recently been talking on air about a case of alleged embezzlement involving a media outlet with government connections.




“Cameroonian media has just lost one of its members, a victim of hatred and barbarism,” Cameroon’s journalists’ trade union said in a statement.

“Where is the freedom of the press, freedom of opinion and freedom of expression in Cameroon when working in the media now entails a mortal risk?”

His colleague, Charlie Amie Tchouemou, editor-in-chief of Amplitude FM, confirmed Zogo’s death and his abduction.

The incident is the latest in a string of attacks against journalists in Cameroon.
