Lahad Datu: Two suspects detained for alleged collaboration with Sulu gunmen
SEMPORNA: Two men, believed to have collaborated over the intrusion of Sulu gunmen into Sabah, were detained by Bukit Aman police in Semporna Thursday.
Semporna police chief DSP Mohd Firdaus Francis Abdullah said during the 8pm raid, the two suspects, both in their 40s, were detained after receiving information from members of the public.
"The two are believed to have collaborated with the terrorists and we have taken them in for questioning," he said when contacted, here, on Friday.
He said police were investigating whether the two suspects had links with the ambush on security forces in Kampung Simunul, on March 2.
Asked about claims from the locals that many illegal immigrants were leaving Semporna, Mohd Firdaus said police would carry out investigations to ensure no terrorist escaped from Semporna. - Bernama
