Ogun State Command of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has dismissed an operative of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Olaniyi Ogunsoro, involved in the death of Remo Stars assistant captain, Tiamiyu Kazeem, in Sagamu, Ogun State.
Tiyamiyu Kazeem was said to have been pushed from a moving SARS van onto a speeding incoming car that eventually killed him on Saturday.
However, the police said the footballer jumped out of the SARS vehicle in an attempt to escape arrest and was crushed by an oncoming vehicle.
The controversy sparked series of protest in Sagamu that claimed the lives of not less than five persons.
While speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that the erring officer had been dismissed from service.
“The SARS officer Olaniyi Ogunsoro has been dismissed from service,” Oyeyemi said.
We learnt that Ogun State Police Command on Monday, tried Ogunsoro and found him guilty of conducts considered to be unprofessional and thereby recommended his dismissal.
