City police chief targets clean-up of drug-infested Kg Numbak in three months

15th February, 2019

By ERIC BAGANG

KOTA KINABALU: From a scenic seaside village, Kampung Numbak is now a drug haunt with police taking aim to eliminate the menace.

The city police have adopted the village and have pledged to clean up the village of drugs in three months. City police chief, ACP Habibi Majinji said that that a police inspector will be appointed as liaison officer for Kampung Numbak who will keep tabs with the crime activities in the area.

According to him, the most common crimes in the village is drug usage, drug trafficking, gambling and harbouring illegal immigrants.

“The ‘Kampung Angkat’ programme will be announced by the Commissioner of Police this Saturday, and the programme will foster closer relationship between the police and the community.

“My aim is to rid this village of drug menace in three months,” he told reporters when met during ‘meet-the-community’ programme in Kampung Numbak on Thursday.

Habibi also said that they would work closely with other enforcement agencies including the City Hall and Marine Department.

“If we receive complaints on illegal immigrants, we will raid the area and arrest them, and if there are illegal structures, we would liaise with the City Hall to demolish them. Same goes to illegal boats, we would inform the Marine Department,” he added.

Commenting on the huge turnout in the programme, Habibi said, the turnout showed that the people in the area are willing to cooperate with the police.

Meanwhile, the village ad hoc action committee chairman who represented the villagers, Hafizul Alif Bansanulla said that the village is infested with illegal immigrants who peddle drugs to the villagers.

He said that the absence of village head and administration has worsened the situation as they villagers have no means to stop outsiders from entering the village.

“We are hoping the government would expedite the appointment of village chief and committee so we can take charge of the security here,” he said adding that there are around 10,000 people residing in the village.
