Sabah police chief instructed by chief minister to gather views from various security agencies and fishing community on whether to continue allowing use of pump boats. FMTNews

Sabah police have been instructed by chief minister, Shafie Apdal to re-study the use of pump boats.

“Maybe there will be a review on the usage of pump boats but let’s wait. We will get the comments and views for now,” he told reporters at the Sabah police contingent headquarters in Kepayan here today. The use of pump boats was outlawed by the previous Barisan Nasional administration in April 2016 to enhance security in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone

Omar said the kidnappers had earlier boarded another boat which had carried two locals and two foreigners. “They were armed with AK-47 and M16 rifles, and a pistol. The kidnappers spoke in Malay when speaking to us but communicated in Suluk among themselves. Asked about the apparent sudden rise in the number of intrusions by KFR groups into Sabah, he said security agencies were doing their best to secure the east coast including the place where yesterday’s incident took place.
