LAHAD DATU: Police say situation in Semporna back to normal
SEMPORNA: District police chief Deputy Superintendent Firdaus Abdullah gave assurance that Semporna is safe and residents can continue their normal daily activities.
He said police have received numerous tip-off and information from the public concerned about Saturday's shootout.
"There are also rumours going around here about the sighting of armed men.
"However, checks conducted upon receiving the information found that they are not true. I would like to advise the people not to listen to rumours, but instead should they have worries, they are welcomed to come to the district police headquarters to get the real picture of the current situation," he told reporters during a press conference at the district police headquarters.
He said to give confidence to the citizens here that police are on top of the situation, they had formed three teams of elite police officers to patrol the district.
On the four men arrested yesterday, Firdaus said police have questioned them and found that they were not involved with the terrorists.
He said three of them had been handed to the district Immigration Department as they did not possess valid travel documents, while another man, a local, was detained by Narcotics Department for possession of methamphetamine.
On the remaining terrorists believed to have fled Kampung Simunul after Saturday shootout, which saw six policemen killed, Firdaus said police are hot on their trail.
"We are tracking them down.
"However, the public has no need to panic as we believe they were scared of the heavy presence of police and military here, and had gone into hiding."
