KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysia's self-styled shaman Ibrahim Mat Zin was seen on Thursday (May 24) making a visit to former Prime Minister Najib Razak's residence in Taman Duta in Kuala Lumpur.

Mr Ibrahim, better known as " Raja Bomoh" or the Bomoh King of the World, appeared barely two minutes after Mr Najib's convoy pulled up at the home following his questioning by the country's anti-graft agency.

 

Arriving in a black Jaguar, with the words "Raja Bomoh" on an emblem above its licence plate, Mr Ibrahim exited from the front passenger seat wearing a black suit complete with a songkok.

He stood outside his own luxury vehicle for about five minutes as reporters, who have been camping outside Mr Najib's home, rushed to get his comments.

Mr Najib's home in Taman Duta has been under media scrutiny following his Barisan Nasional coalition's ouster at the May 9 general election, with party colleagues and supporters often seen paying him a visit.

Mr Ibrahim said he had come to see the situation for himself, but did not perform any rituals.

Mr Najib was returning from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission headquarters after his second day of questioning over an investigation into SRC International, a subsidiary of the troubled 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) state investment fund.

 

Mr Ibrahim first made headlines in March 2014 when he conducted two rituals at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in an attempt to locate the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

He also performed a ritual outside the National Institute of Forensic Medicine at Hospital Kuala Lumpur after the February 2017 assassination of Mr Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

As tensions between Malaysia and North Korea built up over the assassination and subsequent investigation, Mr Ibrahim also performed a ritual using coconuts and sticks on a beach in Bagan Lalang, Selangor, purportedly to "defend" Malaysia from North Korea.

He had also expressed an interest to contest in the Bagan Datuk parliamentary seat in Perak at the recently concluded election, but was nowhere to be seen on Nomination Day on April 28.
