Free Malaysia Today, citing Bernama, revealed that the suspect is believed to have been associated with the notorious Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terrorist group. In response to the attack, the Police Inspector-General, Razarudin Husain, announced that five family members of the suspect had been apprehended to aid in the ongoing investigations.

New Straits Times reported that Razarudin also disclosed the discovery of JI-related materials at the suspect’s residence. Moreover, following the attack, over 20 JI members have been identified and are being monitored in Johor, intensifying concerns over potential terror threats in the region.

This alarming incident underscores the importance of vigilance and cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the public in combating terrorism and maintaining safety in our communities.

Victims

The incident began when two students, aged 22 and 21, entered the Ulu Tiram police station at 2:30 am to discuss a two-year-old sexual assault case. While the constables were distracted, the primary suspect, riding a motorcycle, entered the station unnoticed through a back entrance. He proceeded to kill two police officers before being fatally shot, leaving another officer injured. The victims, Ahmad Azza Fahmi bin Azhar and Muhamad Syafiq bin Ahmad Said, had served approximately two years on the police force.
