In a tearful tone, Sharif shared his last moment with his 29-year-old brother who died in a bloody amok tragedy at the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) Camp today.

“I am sad. My brother left his wife who had just given birth to a baby over a month old, including three young children,” he said.

In fact, he said, my brother always dreamed of having 10 children but that dream was just a memory.

“He would always advise not to leave prayers. Always remember Allah because we do not know when we will die,” he said while shedding tears when met at the Sarawak Heart Centre Emergency Unit compound today.

Sharif said that the deceased had time to joke about the house door’s paint and talked about painting it (the house door) to make it look beautiful.

“Before the incident, my brother wished to go fishing, buy a fishing rod. He even invited me to go with him,” he said while remembering his memories with his brother.

Sharif said his brother had served as a personnel of the RMAF for about 12 years and had only been stationed in Sarawak two years ago.

“My brother is the second child of seven siblings. We have five brothers and two sisters,” he explained.

Earlier, Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Aidi Ismail informed that the incident took place at the RMAF Squadron 330 Guard Station, Kota Samarahan involved four RMAF personnel working at the station.

All four members of the air force involved in the shooting incident, were also killed.
