MIRI: Three political secretaries to the chief minister earlier this morning lodged a police report against a Facebook user who have posted a threat against Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg on Sep 14.

Sharkawi Suhaili, Julaini Mokhtar and Charles Balan Seling, who lodged the report at the Miri Central Police Station, stated that the account holder – Ricky Poh – had commented on a post in a local online news portal Facebook page at 10.06pm last Friday, which exaggerated and twisted a statement made by Abang Johari regarding rural water and electricity supply project during a ceremony held on Sep 13.

The report called on the police to investigate those responsible to prevent similar incidents from occurring again.
