The assailant, Yusuf Azmi, explains what happened
One of the names, which was mentioned by the police, Yusuf Azmi, actually came out with a statement on Facebook recently and addressed the incident.
Yusuf said that he met the foreigner after hearing rumours about people trying to exploit his clothing brand by selling fake or low-quality shirts.
He explained he acted in such a way because he did not want a third person to tarnish his name and the clothing brand.
You try to imagine we only ordered 600 pieces at a price of RM10 ringgit. He can make an easy profit of RM6000 just by selling reject Semboyan Jihad t-shirts that has been rejected. He also used a shirt printing shop owned by the Malays themselves as bait and convince victims to be deceived.Yusuf Azmi
