KOTA KINABALU: A Chinese national is believed to have been kidnapped from a fish farm in Lahad Datu’s Silam, hardly 24-hours after pirates robbed four anglers in waters off Tanjung Labian.
Unofficial reports claimed that gunmen had grabbed the Chinese national identified as Yang Zai Lin, who is a manager of Wonderful Terrace Sdn Bhd, a company operating a fish farm in the area at about 2.45am on Tuesday.
No further details were available as senior police and Esscom officials were at the scene and conducting follow up operations.
It is believed that the gunmen had fled towards the southern Philippines.
At about 11pm on Sunday, four men in military fatigues robbed a teacher and three of his friends fishing in the waters off Sungai Bilis in Tanjung Labian of their two outboard engines and a pump boat engine.
No one was hurt in the incident and the four were rescued by General Operations Force policemen at about 2am on Monday.
This is the second kidnapping in nearly a month.
On April 2, Chinese tourist Gao Hua Yuan, 29, and resort worker Marcy Darawan, 40, were snatched from the Singamata Reef Resort in Semporna.
The two are being held by their gunmen demanding ransoms in southern Philippines.
