Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Khalid Abu Bakar said the four were brought back by Police Special Forces after being released with no ransom paid.
“The four seem to be in good health. They are in Sandakan and will be taken to Kota Kinabalu today.
“We have not taken their statements just yet,” he said at a press conference today.

SIBU: A relative of one of the four sailors recently freed by the Abu Sayyaf militant group has finally spoken out about rumours suggesting that the hostages were released after a ransom was paid to their captors. Datuk Lau Cheng Kiong, who is the uncle of Johnny Lau Jung Hien, said the families had raised RM12 million in donations from the public since their plea to release the hostages were highlighted in the media. Cheng Kiong said the donations were then handed over to the police's Special Branch in Sandakan, Sabah on May 24. "All proceeds from the donation raised were handed over to the police," Cheng Kiong said, addressing issues surrounding the ransom. Cheng Kiong was speaking at a press conference which was also attended by Johnny and the rest of the sailors here today. He explained from the total amount, RM1 million were proceeds from the mortgage of their two houses at Pulau Li Hua. The shipping company, which was the employer of the four, also contributed RM2 million in donations while the remaining amount was donated by the public. The donations, Cheng Kiong said, came from individuals and groups from Malaysia as well as countries including China, Papua New Guinea, Taiwan and Solomon Islands. Present were the sailors - Wong Hung Sing, 34, Wong Teck Kang, 31, and his younger brother Teck Chii, 29. At the beginning of the press conference, the four sailors had knelt down as a gesture of appreciation to those who had prayed and contributed to their release.
