The Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, has redeemed the N30,000,000 bounty he promised anyone with information that would lead to the arrest of the notorious criminal captured and killed last week, Honest Digbara, a.k.a, Bobosky.
The Secretary to the State Government, Dr Tammy Danagogo, while handing over the N30m cheque to the police on behalf of Wike said that he was elated that the police force and the public worked assiduously to ensure the capture of the criminal.
He said: “Governor Wike will continue to stand by his words, as this is not the first time such redemption is occurring in the state. If we can recall when the Governor made a promise over Don Wani, a criminal who disturbed the peace of ONELGA, all security agencies and citizenry were activated to capture him, and the pledge was also redeemed”.
He thanked the Police and members of the public for their belief in Wike’s promise to reward all whistleblowers.
“I thank the police officers for the gallantry in arresting the criminals and I also thank the informants who cannot be mentioned here”, he said.
In his remarks, Mukan thanked the governor for fulfilling his promise stressing that it was not an easy task as the police murdered sleep and exhibited but professionalism throughout the operation, that led to the arrest of Bobosky.
