The Borno state Police Command yesterday fulfilled its promise to reward anybody who offers useful information that could lead to the arrest of Boko Haram members, with the presentation of the sum of N500, 000 to an anonymous informant.
The state Police Commissioner, Bala Hassan, who handed over the amount to the beneficiary at the command’s headquarters, in Maiduguri, the state capital, did not however comment on the kind of information given by the informant.
Journalists, who were invited for the mini-event, were however allowed to observe the handing over of the N500,000 to the said informant whose face was covered, perhaps to avoid being identified by the Boko Haram members.  
The commissioner said the police was determined to protect “the good citizen for his commendable efforts,” urging citizen to demonstrate such rare courage.
Responding to question about the safety of the person, Hassn assured that the police would give adequate protection and security of the informant. He said none of the policemen in the command knew the identity of the person except himself, assuring that “the police will handle such information with confidentiality it deserves.” 
He also paraded some of the arms and ammunition recovered in recent times including pump action gun, AK 47, several rounds of ammunition and their magazines, metal detectors, bullet proof jackets, police crash helmets among other items.
