Three persons have reportedly lost their lives while protesting against killing of footballer named Tiyamiyu Kazeem by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS in Sagamu, Ogun state.
Kazeem was said to have been pushed from a SARS van on motion and onto a speeding car that eventually killed him on Saturday after officers of the agency wrongly accused him of being an Internet fraudster (Yahoo boy).
Youth in the area had gone to the police station to aid their anger at the police brutality.
Three persons were killed when the police fired live ammunition into the mob while also shooting off tear gas canisters.
In retaliation, the young men and women pelted the law enforcement officials with stones.
A resident of the town named Kehinde Adekoya said:
“I can tell you that at least three persons have been killed, I saw their bodies with my eyes. The entire place is boiling now. We don’t want SARS anymore in Sagamu.”
