KOTA KINABALU: Anthony Chang Kim Fook stabbed a youth with a Samurai sword about two hours before he was fatally shot in front of the Donggongon library in Penampang.
Barry Ligunjang, 23, told the inquest that Anthony stabbed him as he (Anthony) was chasing Moses Mojuntin, the son of former state minister Datuk Conrad Mojuntin, outside the SJD Cafe pub at about 2am on Oct 23 last year.
“Among the five who were chasing Moses, Anthony was the closest. He was holding up a Samurai sword as if getting ready to slash Moses,” Barry said, adding that in panic he ran and was punched.
“When Moses came close to me, Anthony stabbed at me with the sword and I jumped back to avoid it.
“A friend of mine called Boy pulled me away and pushed Anthony using his leg.”
He said he ran towards the crowd standing near the rear entrance of the SJD Cafe and met a friend Emil who asked why he was bleeding.
He said he pulled off his brown T-shirt and saw the stab wound.
Barry said he and a friend, Carl, ran into SJD Cafe after a youth they called Titi (Lim Fan Shiong) threatened them with a Samurai sword.
He said Titi’s friend, Kado (Ferdenend Felix Jiponi), then came towards them and swung a pipe which hit Emil.
Barry said they ran out through the rear entrance and were again chased by Anthony.
He however managed to jump into the car driven by Carl and they drove to Kampung Penampang Proper.
To a question from Deputy Public Prosecutor, Barry said he went back to Donggongon and saw a crowd in front of the library at about 4am.
He said he then heard two gunshots.
After a while, he saw Titi running past carrying a Samurai sword that he threw on the road near the sidewalk in front of the library.
