LAHAD DATU: State Police Commissioner Datuk Omar Mammah said security forces around the waters Pulau Gaya Semporna where two Indonesian fishermen were kidnapped, has been beefed up.

“We have also mobilised our assets to detect the whereabouts of hostages and their captors,” Omar said in a media conference after witnessing the handing over of duty by outgoing Lahad Datu OCPD SAC Hamzah Ahmad to ACP Nasri Mansor yesterday.

Omar said so far neither the victims’ employers nor their respective family members have been contacted by any quarters, and efforts to locate the hostages and the suspects have been intensified.

Omar also advised fishermen in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (ESSZone) to always be on the alert for presence of unknown foreign boats in their area and to immediately notify the security forces on the sightings.

Meanwhile, Kunak born Nasri, 41, succeeded Hamzah as the new Lahad Datu OCPD.

He joined the Royal Malaysian Police in 2002 and was the Staff Officer of D9 Special Investigations of the Selangor Police Criminal Investigation Department prior to his new posting here.

Hamzah, 51, will start his new duty as the Commander of the Bukit Aman Federal Reserve Unit.

Earlier in his speech, Hamzah said the crime index for the district recorded a drop of 47 cases or 24.74 percent from January to September this year compared to the corresponding period of 2017.
