He offers to protect Costigan from the Mafia, who, he promises, will return with reinforcements to kill Costigan.

He promises to whom here?, so What is the meaning of this sentence?

"He" (Costello) promises to Costigan. "Promises" means "guarantees" or "assures" in this instance. So Costello guarantees to Costigan that the mafia will return with reinforcements to kill Costigan.
