Remo Star Player Killed By SARS Who Were On Illegal Mission – Gov. Dapo Abiodun
Following the extra-judicial killing of Remo star player, Tiamiyu Kazeem, by the men of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), the governor of Ogun state, Prince Dapo Abiodun has condemned the action of the police and sympathized with the parents of the deceased.
The governor via his verified Instagram handle said the men of SARS who killed Tiamiyu were on illegal mission.
CityNews reports that protest had erupted over the killing of the footballer which was first reported to the Police complaint unit online. But the response of the complaint unit didn’t go well with many who followed the story from onset.
Kazeem, popularly known as Kaka, was reportedly killed on Saturday along the Abeokuta-Sagamu Expressway after he was arrested by operatives of the Zonal Intervention Squad in the Obada area of the state.
Speaking via his social media handle, the Ogun state governor as we quote below:
Today, I was on a condolence visit to the residence of Tiamiyu Kazeem’s parents. Tiamiyu, who was until his death, a vice captain of the Remo Stars Football Club died in an unfortunate encounter with some men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) who were on an illegal mission.
The DIG, Peter Ogunyonwo, who was with me on the visit, relayed the directive of the IGP that the satellite offices set up by all 12 zones be scrapped, dismantled and handed over to the various Commissioners of Police.
Kaka’s death is irreversibly regrettable because Ogun State has lost a man of unexplored talents. But this long-awaited, significant reform within the structures of the Nigerian Police assures us of an end to such anomalies.
