Six Filipinos held for illegal entry into Sabah

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah marine police have detained six Filipinos who were trying to slip into Sandakan from the southern Philippines.
Marine Police Region 4 commander Asst Comm Yazib Abd Aziz said the six illegals were nabbed by a team patrolling the waters off Pamaguan in Sandakan at 3.30pm on Friday following a tip-off.
Upon spotting the marine police's vessel, the small boat sped towards land and once near the shore, the boatman jumped overboard and swam away, leaving his six passengers behind.
Asst Comm Yazib said the boat with a 40-horsepower outboard engine did not have any registration number.
All six men did not have any identification documents on them, he said, adding that they had admitted to trying to sneak into the country illegally.
The six suspects, aged between 16 and 45 were from Basilan, a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf group led by Isnilon Hapilon.
Hapilon had teamed up with the Maute militants that mounted an armed siege of Marawi city in their bid to set up an Islamic state in Asia.
