Eduardo Dizon

The anchor working for the Brigada News FM radio was shot dead when he was driving home in Kidapawan City, in the southern Philippines island of Mindanao after hosting his daily news commentary show when two men riding a motorcycle assaulted and shot him five times. He managed to steer his car to one side of the road but he died a few minutes after due to the gunshots wounds.

A few days before his assassination, Dizon reported to the Kidapawan police that he had been challenged to a “duel”. In addition, Brigada News FM radio had received a threatening message from an unidentified sender saying “Watch out Brigada because you will die, just wait someone will shoot you.”
