Tok Mat’s event with the community apparently attended by only a handful of people.

Six police reports have been lodged by residents in Sendayan and the Sendayan Umno division over postings on images and status by a Facebook account holder which were alleged to be fake news on caretaker Negri Sembilan menteri besar Mohamad Hasan.

The reports were lodged by Kampung Sendayan Development and Security Committee, Kampung Sendayan MIC, Sendayan Umno division, Kampung Sendayan Umno Youth leader, Kampung Sendayan Wanita Umno and the Negri Sembilan Graduates’ Association at the Seremban 2 police station at about 1.15pm today.

Seri Sendayan Umno Information committee member Noh Ahmad said the report was lodged based on the status and images posted on a Facebook account belonging to one Steven AC stating that a ‘Leader with the People’ programme at the Sendayan Community Hall had received a poor response from local residents.

“It stated that Tok Mat’s (Mohamad Hasan) programme with the community was not attended by many people by showing an image of an empty hall,” he told Bernama in Seremban today.
