On February 9, 2022, community radio journalist Evariste Djaï-Loramadji was killed in the village of Sandana, some 600 kilometres southeast of Chadian capital N’Djamena. The journalist was live reporting on people who were, as he described it,  “fleeing into the bush” in a confused situation in his village. After his report Radio Lotiko could not reach him anymore. His body was found in the early evening by a colleague who had arrived from a nearby locality. He had been shot several times in the head.
