Bungomedia – NU Asks Islamic Boarding Schools Not to be Provoked by Mad People’s Terror
Terror of unknown persons or OTK attacking places of worship and Islamic boarding schools occurred more than once in East Java. Recently, OTK attacks were reported to have occurred in the Al Falah Ploso Islamic Boarding School, Kediri Regency, and the Karangasem Paciran Islamic Boarding School, Lamongan. However, the Nahdlatul Ulama leadership asked the public not to be provoked.
In Lamongan, OTK reportedly attacked KH Hakam Mubarok at the Karangasem Paciran Islamic Boarding School, Lamongan, on Sunday, February 18 2018. However, the East Java Regional Police denied that the OTK had attacked Kiak Hakam. After investigation, the OTK was NT (23 years old) bin S, a resident of Cirebon, West Java.
NT is suspected of having a mental disorder since childhood. He had left his parents’ house in Cirebon four years ago. “The person concerned did not attack, but resisted when he was about to be transferred,” said the Head of Public Relations of the East Java Police, Kombes Pol. Frans Barung Mangera, on Monday, February 19 2018.
