A Cameroonian journalist's mutilated body was found outside the capital five days after he disappeared.
He allegedly mentioned an embezzlement case involving a government official on his radio show before his disappearance.
The mutilated remains of the renowned Cameroonian journalist and radio broadcaster was discovered outside the capital on Sunday, five days after he was purportedly snatched outside a police station by unidentified attackers.
Martinez Zogo was the general director and host of the privately owned Amplitude FM radio station's popular daily show Embouteillage.
Last Tuesday, his heavily damaged automobile was discovered outside a police station in a district near Cameroon's capital, Yaounde.
Charly Tchouemou, the editor-in-chief of Amplitude FM, said he found Zogo's body near Egobo, north of Yaounde.
According to the media watchdog Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Tuesday evening, police personnel at the Nkol-Nkondi station heard a loud commotion outside.
They rushed outside to check and saw Zogo's empty automobile slammed into the station's outside gate.
A black automobile was observed speeding away, leading the police to believe the journalist had been kidnapped.
According to RSF, Zogo recently discussed on his show an alleged embezzlement case involving a wealthy businessman linked to a member of the Cameroonian administration.
"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?"
