He had recently talked on air about an alleged embezzlement case involving a wealthy businessmen and top officials.

A spokesperson from Amplitude FM said that, along with Mr Zogo's wife, they had identified the body of the radio presenter, which was found dumped on bare ground outside the capital, Yaoundé.

A black vehicle was seen driving away from the scene.
