Kota Kinabalu: Leader of an Islamic NGO Datu Akjan Datu Ali Muhammad lodged a police report against Umno Youth exco member and controversial blogger Papagomo on Sunday claiming the latter had insulted Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal in Kimanis where a by-election took place the day before.

Akjan claimed to have hit Papagomo, whose real name is Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris, three times after the latter refused to apologise for his alleged action of tearing up Shafie’s poster and calling him a traitor.

“We will stand for our Chief Minister regardless of who he is, we will defend our leader, it doesn’t matter if it is Pairin, Yong Teck Lee, Bernard Dompok, Madius Tangau...we will stand up for our leader,” Akjan told Daily Express.

Akjan lodged the report at a police station at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport where a scuffle occurred between Papagomo and a group of men who were upset by the blogger’s alleged disrespect towards Shafie, with several video clips of the fracas going viral on social media.
