Today, Sabahans know him as a hero who formed a resistance fighting the increasing dominance of British in Sabah. The news report tells the story of how the respected hero was finally defeated. But, later resistance continued but it was a losing battle.

Hari ini, rakyat Sabah mengenali beliau sebagai pahlawan yang menentang pihak British yang semakin berkuasa di Sabah. Petikan akhbar ini menceritakan bagaimana seorang pahlawan yang dihormati ini akhirnya tewas ke tangan penjajah. Namun, pertempuran dengan pihak penjajah  berterusan, namun akhirnya menuju ke dalam kancah kekalahan.
