Upset by the killing of Remo Stars Football Club defender, Kazeem Tiamiyu, Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun, has ordered an investigation into the extra-judicial death by the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad (FSARs).
He also appealed to residents of the state to remain calm and not to resort to selfhelp on the killing of the footballer in Sagamu on Saturday.
Assuring that similar cases involving SARs in the state will be looked into, he described the killing of the soccer star as unfortunate and urged  players, management and supporters of Remo Stars Football Club to remain calm.
“The killers will be brought to justice,” he promised.

Shocked at the tragic event, Abiodun promised a “proper, transparent and independent investigation” would be launched into the incident to know what transpired with a view to bringing those responsible to justice.

The governor extolled the late player as a young man with great potential, saying “we will not take with levity, the safety of lives and property of the good people of Ogun State.

“The incident will not be swept under the carpet.”

 Abiodun also sympathised with the two persons hospitalised as a result of Thursday’s shooting at Olomoore Market, Abeokuta by men of anti-cultism team of Ogun State Police Command.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has expressed deep grief over the death of the vice chairman of the Rivers State Football Association, Chief and the Remo Stars’ player, Kazeem Tiamiyu.

In a letter signed by the NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, the NFF said it remembered Chief Omineokuma-Kile as “a man of integrity with dignified bearing, as he accomplished his duties quietly and with diligence, both during the Annual General Assembly and in his position as the vice chairman of Rivers State Football Association.

The NFF also sent a letter of condolence to the Chairman of Ogun State Football Association and NFF Executive Committee member, Alhaji Ganiyu Majekodunmi over the untimely death of assistant captain of Remo Stars Football Club, Kazeem.
