Assailants Hack Popular Radio Presenter, Itiat Zion To Death In Calabar

The deceased was said to have anchored major Efik traditional marriages among other events where he entertained his audience.

According to Cross River Watch, the young man was standing close to a popular hotel located along the Murtala Mohammed Highway, waiting to get a vehicle back home, when his assailants came out of a vehicle and butchered him.

A source was quoted as saying, “The boys just came out from a vehicle and butchered him to death.”

One of his colleagues who is also a popular Efik MC, Koko Dear, said Zion’s death may have happened as a result of mistaken identity. 

He also said he was the one who went to deposit his corpse in the morgue.

Together with Koko Dear, Itiat Zion with others presented a popular Efik programme, “Uwem Ye Ido” on FAD 93.1 FM Calabar.


Meanwhile friends have taken to social media to mourn Zion. See posts below…
