A radio blocktimer in Estancia, Iloilo was shot by two motorcycle-riding suspects Friday (Dec. 1) afternoon.

The Guardian, a local newspaper, reported that broadcaster Arnie Pullan of Poblacion Zone I, Estancia was riding a motorcycle and just left the MBC-Radyo Natin station located in the same area past 1pm yesterday when the unidentified gunmen shot him with still unknown calibers of guns.

The police said Pullan sustained two gunshot wounds in the head and remains in critical condition in a local hospital.

Pullan was with provincial board member Butch Aclaro during the shooting. Aclaro's injuries have yet to be determined as of this writing.

Pullan is the host of "The Mayor's Hour," a radio blocktime program of Estancia Mayor Rene Cordero.

The Estancia PNP refused to say whether it was job related or not. The mayor though said the motive was politics, saying he already has an idea of the mastermind and suspects although he declined to give any name.

Pullan survived an attempt on his life two years ago.
