Kota Kinabalu: Police have yet to make any arrests following the drive-by shooting which damaged 46 business premises in Kota Kinabalu and Penampang on Jan 10.

City Police Chief ACP Jauteh Dikun on Thursday said police are still probing the case, adding that statements given by police to the media were based on information gathered through investigations.

He said this in response to Sabah Progressive Party President Datuk Yong Teck Lee's remarks over the unconvincing police explanation that the shooting was the work of 'budak nakal' (naughty children) using air guns that shoot 'guli' (marbles).

Yong said this only made the people more sceptical about the identity and motive of the shooters.

Meanwhile, State Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib, when contacted, said that he will issue a statement in due time as he was currently outstation.
