Emir Sambo who is also the Plateau state chapter chairman of Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) said the Sultan has directed him to find out whether it was true that the man has indeed found and returned the money.

He said having discovered that it was true, the Sultan sent an equal amount of N500,000 to be given to Malam Akilu as a reward for a good deed.

Also, the Emir of Kanam His Royal Highness, Muhammad Babangida Mua’zu, while presenting the money, said what Malam Akilu did was worthy of emulation by all Muslims and even non-Muslims alike.
