Greetings. Today marks the 14th day I am covering the invasion of Sulu terrorists in Semporna, Sabah. Here is an opportunity for me to share a picture story titled “Semporna: The Death of a National Hero”.
The late Sergeant Azis bin Sarikon, 52, was part of the PGA Battalion 14 Semporna, Sabah. He was one of the 6 police officers who were gunned down in a fierce firefight with Sulu terrorists in Kampung Seri Jaya, Simunul, Semporna on the 2nd of March, 2013.
He leaves behind a wife, Siti Bandorah Binti Mahalil,39 and 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls.
May the late hero’s soul rest in peace among the righteous ones.
16 March 2013 at Semporna, Sabah, Malaysia
