Ogun State Police denies killing three protesters over death of Remo Stars player Tiamiyu Kazeem
Ogun State Police Command has denied killing three people among those who protested against the death of Remo Stars player, Tiamiyu Kazeem in Sagamu.
According to a statement signed by the command’s spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, he described the viral video attributing the death of the footballer to the police command as mischievous.
He pointed out that Kazeem was reportedly killed by an operative of the zonal defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, who threw him out of a moving operational vehicle around the Sagamu interchange after he was arrested.
“In the said video, the said individual displays the picture of retired DIG Peter Ogunyanwo, then the DIG South-West, sitting beside Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, during his condolence visit to the deceased family,” Oyeyemi said per Punch.
“The said individual falsely claim that three other persons who were protesting against the killing of Tiamiyi Kazeem were also killed by an unidentified policeman on the day of the incident to the knowledge of the DIG.
“It is therefore a thing of surprise for anyone to in anyway ascribe the killing of any protester to the DIG who came days after the whole incident.”
