By Amaechi Agbo
The last, perhaps, might not have been heard about the brutality and recklessness with which overzealous Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS main and kill innocent Nigerians without provocation, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report
Nigeria players have failed victims of this dastardly act by the SARS operatives and this time, Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) Assistant Captain and Defender, Tiyamu Kazeem (Kaka) was the victim.
Kazeem, according the media officer of the club, Oladimeji Oshode was killed by a SARS officer who tagged him a “Yahoo boy” and demanded to take him to a police station in, Ogun state despite the player showing his identity card as a Remo Stars player.
The incident occurred Saturday afternoon in Sagamu while he was driving along Sagamu area of Ogun State with one of his teammates, Sanni Abubakar.
According to an eyewitness, he claimed that the SARS officer stopped the footballer and labelled him a Yahoo Boy and they insisted on taking him to the nearby police station.
“The SARS officer stopped Tiyamiyu Kazeem insisting that he was a Yahoo Boy, he brought out his identity (ID) card to identify himself as a player of Remo Stars FC but the officer insisted on taking him to the nearest police station in Sagamu.
“Tiyamiyu and Sanni obliged, followed the SARS officers, only for them to notice that they were driving towards Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway, then the guys questioned to know were the SARS officers were taking them to, but this prompted them to stop the car and push him (Tiyamiyu) out of the car, whereby an oncoming vehicle knocked him down.”
He was immediately rushed to Fakoya Hospital in Sagamu, where it was confirmed that Tiyamiyu Kazeem died on arrival
Until his death, he was a humble and reliable defender for Remo Stars FC in the ongoing 2019/2020 Nigeria National League (NNL).
May his soul rest in perfect peace and may the Lord help the family to bear the irreparable loss, this is a great loss to Remo Stars Family and the entire football fraternity.
It could be recalled that in August 2019, Enyimba Football Club player, Stephen Chukwude, was harassed by a policeman on the suspicion that he was involved in internet fraud, popularly called Yahoo Yahoo. The footballer said the policeman reached the conclusion because he drove a Benz car.
Nigerians in 2019 clamoured for the removal of SARS from the Nigeria Police Force but instead, the police hierarchy decided to “reform” the SARS unit, a move that has not yielded any meaningful result.
