Noor Fikrie's last SMS dashed cleaner’s hopes of seeing her son again

“The only way you will see me is when I return in a coffin,” said Mohd Noor Fikrie Abd Kahar in his last text message to his mother a day before he was shot dead.

The message all but dashed the hope of Noresah Kusin, 45, for her son's safe return, said his close friend and neighbour Mohd Musa Abd Rashid, 26.

“A relative of ours in Kuala Lumpur informed her about the shooting and she became hysterical and could not stop crying,” Mohd Musa said.

He said the whole family had left for Cheras and were currently residing at Mohd Noor Fikrie's brother's house.

Mohd Musa said they were shocked but had suspected something was amiss when he did not return for Hari Raya in September.

“He was a religious and quiet person who never failed to return to Benut to be with his mother for Hari Raya,” he said.

He added that Mohd Noor Fikrie usually kept in touch with his brother via Facebook and would SMS his mother once in a while.

“Before leaving for Kuala Lumpur, the family told me that they were worried as they had to raise RM8,000 to transport his body home. Noresah only works as a cleaner at a secondary school here and her husband is retired so we are looking for ways to raise the money,” he said.

Meanwhile, in Putrajaya, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the police had been tasked with bringing back Mohd Noor Fikrie's body.

“(Mohd Noor) Fikrie's family has requested the help of the Malaysian Government to bring his body home to Malaysia.

“Members of his family and several of our officers will take off to Davao to organise the return of his remains in the quickest time possible,” he said.

Hishammuddin reiterated the Government's serious stance against acts of terrorism.
