Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has said those found culpable in the death of Remo Stars Football Club player, Tiyamiyu Kazeem, would be brought to book according to laid down laws.
Abiodun also called for calm in the wake of recent shootings and misconducts by police operatives in the state, saying his administration will never take with levity, the lives and property of the people of the state.
In a statement Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, the governor described the killing of the soccer star on Saturday as unfortunate.
New Telegraph reports that Kazeem, popularly known as ‘Kaka’, was killed along the Abeokuta-Sagamu Expressway by an operative of the Zonal Intervention Squad (ZIS), Obada, who suspected him of being an internet fraudster (Yahoo Boy).
The incident has since generated outrage and youths and residents of Sagamu are reportedly mobilising for protest against police brutality.
Abiodun, however, urged players, management and supporters of Remo Stars Football Club to remain calm, adding that the killers of the late footballer would be unravelled and brought to justice.
He also urged all residents of the state to remain calm, promising to investigate the reported shootings by security agents in Abeokuta and Sagamu areas of the state.
