Tiamiyu Kazeem: Ogun Police command recommends dismissal for SARS operative
The Ogun State Police command says the Police have paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Tiamiyu Kazeem, who was allegedly killed by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. The State’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, added that the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has asked the Deputy Inspector General in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Anthony Ogbizi, to investigate the matter.
Oyeyemi noted that the operative who allegedly caused Tiamiyu Kazeem’s death, is already being detained for investigation, stressing that the operative “embarked on illegal duty, nobody sent him there and when he got there he didn’t deem it fit to book his presence at the Sagamu police station.”
Oyeyemi said, “We have already investigated the man and tried him in the orderly room. We have also recommended him for dismissal but being an inspector, it is not the CP that will approve it and the recommendation has been sent to the AIG zone ll for approval and as soon as it is approved, that guy will be charged to court.”
“The guy acted unprofessionally because, if he arrests someone from such a long distance, why didn’t he handcuff him? So, his act of unprofessionalism led to the death of the man and that is why he will be charged to court,” Oyeyemi added.
