The family of late Remo Stars Football Club Assistant Captain, Kazeem Tiyamiyu, popularly known as Kaka, has refuted the preliminary reports on the alleged killing of their son released by the Nigeria Police Force.
They insisted that Kaka was allegedly “murdered” on Saturday by some operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad attached to the Ogun State Police Command on the Sagamu-Abeokuta road and demanded justice.
The family said that the Ogun State Government should ensure that the killers of the deceased were brought to book.
The family made the demand in a statement signed by its lawyers Adegbesan Adenola Esq., Ogunsanmi Abisoye Esq. and the family’s spokesman, Ganiyu Tiyamiyu.
The family, in the statement, also described Kaka’s murder as “premeditated murder of a young, promising and rising star by some lawless and reckless SARS officers.”
“One member of the SARS team drove Tiyamiyu’s car with Tiyamiyu’s fellow colleague signed to the same club by his side and they proceeded straight to Abeokuta.”
Ganiyu Tiyamiyu said that the SARS operatives stopped the vehicle transporting them and the two people arrested.
“And the deceased was questioning the SARS officers on the reason for his illegal arrest.
Ganiyu Tiyamiyu said that the SARS operative that allegedly committed the crime attempted to escape.
The spokesman said that he was apprehended by some of the hospital’s staff and handed over to the police.
“Contrary to the claim by the police that the deceased was always dressed in military uniform, he was not in any military uniform neither has he ever worn any military uniform.
