Deceased Remo Stars player, Kazeem Tiyamiyu, on verge of Europe move before death – Father

Fasasi Tiyamiyu, the father of the Remo Stars’ Football player who allegedly died at the hands of operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad [SARS] in Sagamu, Ogun State, says his son was on the verge of joining a club in Europe before his demise.
Kazeem Tiyamiyu, fondly known as Kaka, was allegedly thrown from a moving Toyota Sienna onto the path of an onrushing car by the operatives. However, the police denied this saying the Remo Stars assistant captain was crushed by a hit-and-run driver while he tried to evade arrest. Fasasi, a former Deputy Leader of the House, representing Ward 11, Sagamu Local Government Area, said officials of SARS must be brought to book over the killing of his son.
Fasasi said,
“The SARS operatives have just wiped out my joy by killing him in cold blood for nothing. His agent had just secured a trial for him with a Swedish club and he was due to leave in three weeks for the trials overseas. “They accused him of wearing military fatigues but when we got to the hospital where he was taken to, Kazeem had his club’s jersey and shorts on. “I had high hopes of seeing my son play in Europe and also representing the Nigerian national team, the Super Eagles, someday in the nearest future. “Look at how the police just shattered the dreams of my son. Now he’s dead and they are trying to shield the killers from facing justice. I thought police were meant to protect the citizens now they are the ones killing Nigerians.”
