SEMPORNA: Police Kons Zakiah Aleip who was kidnapped by Filipino gunmen, phoned his wife Sunday night to say he was alive.
“He called his wife (Sharifah Erna Berson) last night saying that he is ok except that he is with some people,” Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) told the Star.
When asked where Zakiah could be held, Khalid said that they were not sure and that they were waiting for further calls.
He also said the police roughly knew the identity of some of those involved in the attack on Pulau Mabul on Saturday night.
Zakiah, 26, was kidnapped after his colleague Kpl Abdul Rajah Jamuan, 32, was shot dead in the attack.
Rajah was buried Monday with full honours.
