JOHOR BARU: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar and members of the royal family attended a special solat hajat prayers for the security personnel who lost their lives and those who are still battling with Sulu gunmen in Lahad Datu.
Sultan Ibrahim and his sons Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Temenggong Johor Tunku Idris Iskandar Sultan Ibrahim and Tunku Panglima Johor Tunku Abdul Rahman Hassanal Sultan Ibrahim attended the special prayers here.
Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff and Islamic Affairs Council adviser Datuk Mohd Noh Gadut also joined the solat hajat held after Friday prayers.
Police officers and soldiers also participated in the solat hajat held at Masjid Pasir Pelangi here.
Sultan Ibrahim decreed that solat hajat would be performed at every mosque in the state after Friday prayers and Maghrib prayers to pray for the safe return of brave soldiers and police officers on duty in Lahad Datu, Sabah.
The prayers were also for the eight police officers who died following skirmishes with Sulu Gunmen in Lahad Datu and Semporna recently.
A total of 52 Sulu gunmen have been killed so far after a group of them claiming to be the royal army of Sultan Sulu entered into Lahad Datu about three weeks ago.
