Better known as "Papagomo", Umno youth's Wan Muhammad Azri Wan Deris was nabbed by the police today following a video he posted on Facebook

Cops said they picked up the blogger yesterday to assist in a probe over the video deemed seditious and allegedly spreads racial hatred and touched on religious sensitivities.

They also warned that police would take action against those who used social media to create unrest.

In a post at 10pm yesterday, Wan Muhammad Azri, on his Facebook page, wrote that he was on the way to the Wangsa Maju district police station to get his statement recorded.

“I do not know what is wrong in freedom of speech which has been lobbied by the Pakatan Harapan government.

“My fight to call on the Anak Bangsa (bumiputras and Malays) to rise in the (Facebook) live video is not a call to arms, or to hurt anyone,” he wrote.

In another post, a page administrator wrote that Wan Muhammad Azri had been asked to go to the Jinjang police station over “his call to defend the Malay and bumiputra rights in the country”.

“Sir Azri’s (Wan Muhammad Azri) fight can only reach its goal if there is solidarity among bumiputras and Malays, even if there is a difference in political views,” the post said.
