Malaysia Airports, the airport management company which manages Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), has extended its appreciation to a policeman for his courage during the shooting incident at the airport on April 14. 

Taking to its official Facebook page, Malaysia Airports expressed its appreciation to the policeman, Corporal Mohammad Shafiq Safi’ai, an Aviation Security (AVSEC) member for performing his duties with responsibility and dedication to ensure visitors’ safety at KLIA.

According to the post, Shafiq acted immediately by giving out a stern warning to the suspect by aiming his firearm at him after the suspect had released 2 gunshots at the airport.

After Shafiq’s courageous actions, the suspect immediately fled the scene, which prompted a manhunt nationwide searching for him.

The suspect was later caught in Kota Bharu, Kelantan by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) in less than 48 hours.

Malaysia Airports attached 2 photos to the post, one of Shafiq and the other of him receiving a certificate of appreciation as well as a mock cheque for RM1,000 contributed by Malaysia Airports.

The infamous shooting incident took place at around 1:30 am at the KLIA Terminal 1 arrival hall, in which the suspect fired 2 gunshots aimed at his wife.

Both of the gunshots missed her but 1 shot struck her bodyguard, identified as Nur Hadith, who had since been hospitalised in critical condition.
