Two men detained under Sosma at Tanjung Baru

LAHAD DATU, April 7 – Two men were detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) in Tanjung Baru, Pulau Bumbum, Semporna, early this morning, as the hunt for remnants of Sulu intruders continues.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said both men, in their 50s, were not locals.

Hamza said a white file containing two letters from the Sulu Sultan and dangerous weapons were seized during the 6.30am raid today.

“Their arrest could link them to terrorists activities,” said Hamza through a Short Messaging Service (SMS) that was sent to the Ops Daulat media unit, here.

According to the SMS, the number of suspects detained under Sosma had increased to 135 while the number of terrorists shot dead, remained at 70. – Bernama
