Radio reporter gunned down in Ilocos Sur

A 52-year-old radio announcer succumbed to gunshot wounds yesterday after being shot by two assailants on a motorcycle in Ilocos Sur last Friday night.
Mario Contaoi, a volunteer radio reporter for dzNS in Vigan City, was attacked by a tandem riding a motorcycle in San Ramon in Magsingal town in Ilocos Sur.
He was declared dead at the Magsingal District Hospital at 3 a.m. on Saturday.
Contaoi, an instructor at the University of Northern Philippines, was riding his motorcycle when he was shot by the men who were behind him. He had just come from his fishpond where he met his friends.
Contaoi taught at the University of Northern Philippines for 25 years.
Local station dzTP reported that no motive had been established yet for the attack.
Sen. Grace Poe urged the Philippine National Police (PNP) and National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to probe the latest killing of another member of the media.
“Isang mamamahayag na naman ang pumanaw matapos tambangan ng mga di kilalang kalalakihan (Another journalist was killed after being attacked by unknown assailants),” Poe said.
“Bigyang katarungan natin ang mga kaagapay natin sa pagpapalabas ng katotohanan sa pamamahayag (Let’s give justice to those who help us pursue truth in the form of journalism),” she added.
Reports showed that no motive had been determined for the attack.
