Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has handed police the N30 million bounty he placed on a criminal suspect popularly called Bobosky.
Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr. Tammy Danagogo presented the N30 million cheque to Police Commissioner Joseph Mukan on behalf of the Governor in Port Harcourt yesterday September 17.
Danagogo reiterated the Wike’s administration’s resolution to continue working for the safety of residents of the state.
“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.
“I thank the police officers for the gallantry in arresting the criminals and I also thank the informants who cannot be mentioned here.”
The Police Commissioner, Mukan thanked Wike for fulfilling his promise while recalling how the police had sleepless night and exhibited a high level of professionalism throughout the operation that led to the arrest of Bobosky.
