KOTA KINABALU: Police have completed their investigation into the purported installation of the Sultan of Sulu here and have submitted the investigation papers to the Senior Federal Council, Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said.
He said police had recorded statements from 31 people including businessman Datu Mohd Akjan Datu Ali Muhammad.
Akjan had reportedly been installed as the 33rd Sultan of Sulu in the presence of 60 people at his Kampung Likas house near here on Feb 2.
Since then, a series of police reports were lodged against Akjan, prompting the probe.
Police arrested Akjan in Kota Kinabalu on May 16 and a magistrate’s court issued a seven-day remand order against him.
Hamza said Akjan was released unconditionally on May 22.
