SECURITY forces hunting down remnants of Sulu militants in Lahad Datu claim to have seen apparitions of dead gunmen around Kampung Tanduo, the scene of bloody clashes with the terrorists last month, Kosmo! Ahad reported.
A source told the paper that at least three ghostly figures had been sighted, appearing at around the twilight hours.
“They kept seeing the three figures, with one of them wearing a white serban (turban),” he said, adding that the phantom gunmen were seen for just a few seconds each time.
The source said there were three pits in the village where dead militants were buried and many of the bodies were found in the mass graves with amulets around their waist, purportedly to make them invincible.
