He told the reporters that Azizul Haque, who took part in the killing mission, said during interrogation that a meeting was held around 10 pm on the Moroccan Mountains in Lambasia, two days before the assassination of Master Mahibullah. Azizul Haque and 4 others were present at the meeting. 

He also said that a top leader of the miscreants had ordered the assassination of Mahibullah. The reason is that Master Mahibullah had become a great leader of the Rohingyas. He has become an important figure day by day as he has played a special role in the repatriation of Rohingyas. He must be stopped. 

Later, plans were made to assassinate him. He said that during the preliminary interrogation, Azizul Haque said that a total of 19 Rohingya terrorists took part in Muhibullah's murder at different stages, the APBn boss said.
