A statement released by the club’s Media Officer revealed that the victim, Tiamiyu Kareem, popularly known in the town and within the club as ‘Kaka’ was killed by the SARS official on Saturday, February 22.

The statement reads as thus; “Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) Assistant Captain and Defender, Tiyamu Kazeem (Kaka) has been killed by a policeman from the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) from the Ogun State Command.
