Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the group did not want to be associated with any militant group from the Philippines.
"They have made known their demands while we have told them that they need to leave the country," he told a press conference here Thursday.
Ismail said negotiations were still ongoing to get them to return to their country.
