The governor of Cross River State, Senator Bassey Otu has rewarded the youths of Nyangasang in Calabar Municipality for playing a role in apprehending kidnappers earlier last month.
Otu made the donation in cash on Thursday via his Chief of Staff, Hon. Emmanuel Ironbar.
CONVERSEER reports that the youths helped in the apprehension of the kidnappers of Mrs Caroline Bassey, a former staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, at her residence in Calabar.
However, the governor’s gesture came in fulfillment of an earlier promise made at his inaugural media parley with journalists in the state where he promised to reward community leaders and persons who will help with useful security information that will lead to the apprehension of kidnappers and other criminal elements in the state.
