Esscom to do census at Sandakan water villages

The Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) will be conducting its second census at water villages in Sandakan early next month. 

Its director-general Mohammad Mentek said they had identified two such villages for the census operation but declined to reveal more details.

"Esscom will be holding a meeting with the Sandakan Municipal Council and other agencies related to the census on Sept 4 to fine tune the details. 

"I hope the residents in the census operation will give their full cooperation, they have nothing to be afraid," he told reporters after hosting an Aidifitri open houses at his residence in Taman Ujana Kingfisher, Likas, near Kota Kinabalu today. 

Also present was former Sabah Yang Dipertua Negeri Sakaran Dandai. 

On the first census carried out in nine water villages in Mukim Simunul, Semporna last month, he said it found there were 2,356 houses and of the number, 1,371 belonged to locals, 815 were occupied by non-citizens holding various documents including the IMM13 document while 170 others were empty.

He said Esscom would be leaving it to the authorities on further action to be taken following the census findings.
