SARS Brutality: Mother Of Slain Remo Star Breaks Silence

Several Sagamu residents on Monday flooded the streets to protest Tiamiyu’s death and alleged police harassment and extortion, an exercise in which five persons were feared killed.

Ogunyonwo said the IG ordered that the ZIS’ office in Ogun be taken over by the police command, adding that the team responsible be recommended for dismissal.

The DIG said the officers were on illegal duty and did not get clearance for the operation. He said that there would be more internal reforms in order to purge out unprofessional and “trigger-happy elements.”

Debunking allegations by the police that her son was an internet fraudster, Tiamiyu’s mother said that the footballer was frequently harassed by policemen.

She said;

“Two weeks before his death, my son complained that operatives of SARS usually surrounded his car. In fact, he called his father on many of these occasions.

“There was a certain day that his elder brother’s wife was delivered of a baby and he was at the hospital. Just as he went in, I was called that SARS operatives had surrounded his car. I rose and went there and on getting there, I met them.

“I called one of their bosses immediately. So, he told them to leave my son alone and they did.

“He was in one of his jerseys that Saturday when the incident happened. He said he wanted to get to his manager’s place. After he left, I called him a few minutes past 11am to tell that him his food was ready.

“The person with him said he stepped down from his vehicle to buy something and before he came back, there were SARS operatives seated in his car.

“They took his phone and interrogated him. He told them he was a footballer but he was whisked to Abeokuta in their vehicle during which the incident happened,” she said. Governor Abiodun assured Tiamiyu’s parents that everything would be done to find out how their son died.

  1. No matter fraudser or not. It’s not why a useless sars operative should take away his life just because he may have refused to bribe him… That sars operatives and his group should be permanently dismissed and the main culprit should face murder for going against the law.
