Yahaya, who did not disclosed the amount set aside by the commissioner for anyone with relevant information, said that something reasonable would be given as the reward.
He said that the police had commenced investigation and a 24-hour surveillance to effect the arrest of the killers.
The deceased, who was born in 1980, joined FRCN in 2011, is survived by a father, mother and siblings.
