Assistant captain of Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC), Tiyamu ‘Kaka’ Kazeem has reportedly been killed by a police officer from the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) from the Ogun State police Command.
It was gathered the footballer who plays as the defender in his team, was on his way to Sagamu with one of his teammates identified as Sanni Abubakar after their training in Abeokuta on Saturday afternoon February 22nd when the sad incident happened.
In a statement released by his club, Kazeem ran into SARS officers who then labelled him as an internet fraudster popularly called ‘yahoo boy’ despite presenting his identity (ID) card to identify himself as a player of Remo Stars Football Club.
According to the club, the SARS officers ordered the two players to follow them to the nearest police station in Sagamu. While on their way to the police station, Sanni and Tiyamiyu decided to question the SARS operatives where they were taking them to, prompting them to stop the car and then pushed Tiyamiyu out whereby an unknowing vehicle knocked him down.
