1. JUST IN: @PDRMsia #counterterrorism detained 12 Filipinos & 1 Malaysian linked to Abu Sayyaf and Maute/ Royal Sulu Force in...none other than my home territory, Sabah. It keeps getting interesting.
3. The RSF members sold membership cards among Filipinos in Sabah. Talk about daring. They ran back to southern Philippines after losing 2013 battle but came back to Sabah Nov 2018 to reactivate RSF. Malaysian troops in 2013 standoff pictured.
2. On Mar 11, @PDRMsia detained 5 Filipinos, 1 Malaysian who fought with Maute in Marawi 2017. Also harboured Maute elements & some Mid East men in Sabah. Also arrested 2 Royal Sulu Force (RSF) members involved in 2013 eastern Sabah attacks.
4. 2nd arrest on Mar 11: Five Filipinos, one Filipina. One worked as construction worker, fought in Marawi, entered Sabah Nov 2018. The other five harboured Maute & ASG elements STILL AT LARGE!
5. 3rd arrest Mar 12: One Filipino in interior Tambunan district. Construction labourer. Harboured Maute & ASG elements STILL AL LARGE.
6. My questions:
A. Arrested RSF, ASG, Maute suspects were in cahoots?
B. What were they planning/doing?
C. How they breached @Esscom_Times security?
D. Who their leaders in Sabah & back home? Sawadjaan, Abu Dzar? Who is RSF leader?
E. How many ASG, Maute, RSF at large in Sabah?
7. My thoughts:
A. It's getting more, not less interesting in Sabah with not full-blown intrusion like 2013, but covert small cells
B. Watch out for people transiting Sabah en route south Phil, with them helping
C. More Marawi remnants
D. Salute @Fuzi_Harun @PDRMsia
8. CLARIFICATION: Of the 5 Filipinos & 1 Malaysian, 4 fought in Marawi with Maute. Not sure which did. Malaysian fought in Marawi? Wonder who that is? Amin Baco finally home (if still alive)? Marawi remnants debriefing important to ask who else Malaysian/FTFs escaped Marawi.
9. A local politician has asked is Sabah now unsafe? 13 terror suspected is too many, he said.

10. After reading all news, I found nobody picked up question: Was Malaysian among 2 RSF men or 4 Marawi remnants? Either way, it's big esp if Marawi returnee. Who's he? Amin Baco or previously unknown FTF? The release by @PDRMsia chief @Fuzi_Harun yesterday vague. Gotta find out
