A Police Constable, Nura Mande, has been honoured by Katsina State Police Command for finding and returning the missing 800 dollars to its owner in the state.
The Daily Reality learnt that the money belongs to a female intending pilgrim, Hajiya Hadiza Usman.
Mande was reportedly presented with a letter of commendation and N30,000 by the Commissioner of Police, Idris Dabban.
SP Gambo Isah, the Command’s Spokesperson, disclosed this in a statement, stating that the constable was on official duty at the state Pilgrims Welfare Board Hajj camp when he found the money.
He added that “while discharging his duty at the Hajj camp, PC Mande found the 800 dollars on the ground and returned it to the board’s Director of Administration, Alhaji Sada Salisu-Rumah.

“Salisu-Rumah commended the police constable for his good behaviour and honesty,” he added.

He, however, called on other police personnel in the command to emulate him.
