JOHOR BARU: Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia's youth wing (Armada) has filed a police report over a disturbance at an event in Ulu Tiram.

Its chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said that during the programme, a group of unknown individuals came by and caused chaos.

"Their actions were violent and dangerous. They also used foul words, insults and chased us out," he said in a statement on Facebook here Saturday (Feb 1).

Syed Saddiq, who is Youth and Sports Minister, said that Armada had lodged a police report over the incident that took place on Friday (Jan 31) night.

"We have video recordings of those involved. We will give full cooperation to the police to conduct an investigation," he said.

When contacted, Johor police chief Comm Datuk Mohd Kamaruddin Md Din said that a statement is expected to be issued on the incident.

A group of about 200 people showed up uninvited at the gathering of Johor Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia members in Ulu Tiram, forcing Syed Saddiq to flee by climbing over a fence.

"We were surrounded by a group of 200 uninvited guests dressed in black," he posted on Facebook.

"They yelled and screamed rude remarks," he said, adding that his parents were also there at the time.

Syed Saddiq said he was worried for the safety of those – including women and children – who were at the event.

He said he was upset by the commotion at the event that was meant to be a peaceful meeting with Johor Bersatu, Armada and Srikandi (women's wing) members.
