KUANTAN: The gunmen in Saturday’s attack in Mabul island could have possessed insider information, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
"They present a very serious challenge for our security forces as they have insider information. The community there does not recognise boundaries and it can be said they are united," he said.
Najib also instructed the Sabah Eastern Security Command (Esscom) to add more personnel where necessary to plug weaknesses.
He said Esscom had been told to reevaluate its security system in detail following the attack.
"If there is a need to add more personnel, then Esscom has to do it.
"There are weaknesses in the security placement and planning on the ground in the Esszone. It is the duty of the new operations chief to look into this," Najib said after attending a briefing on the state's development at Wisma Sri Pahang here on Sunday.
Kpl Rajah Jamuan was killed in the raid on Saturday, while marine police constable Zakiah Aliep was reported to have been kidnapped.
