Late Remo Stars player killed by policeman laid to rest

Late Remo Stars Football Club Vice Captain, Kazeem Tiyamiyu, has been buried but the question remains about his death.
The 21-year-old, who played in defence for second tier side Remo Stars, was knocked down and killed in an apparent hit and run, but his club alleged that he was a victim of police brutality.
Attended by his family, friends and teammates, Tiamiyu was tucked in the traditional white shroud (kaftan) used to wrap bodies and buried in line with Islamic burial custom.
“We lit up Kazeem Tiyamiyu (Kaka)’s path to Al-Jannah yesterday night and he was buried today at his family house in Ajaka, Sagamu, Ogun State,” Remo Stars announced.
Midfielder Toyeeb Gidado paid tribute to his teammate and described him as a “great person”.
“It’s sad to say goodbye to someone you play alongside, a great person because this could’ve been anyone of us,” Gidado told BBC Sport.
The club’s President, Kunle Soname, and the Nigeria Football Federation boss, Amaju Pinnick, paid a condolence visit to the family this week.
The circumstances surrounding Tiamiyu’s death have been widely condemned across the country as it reportedly happened while he was in a vehicle being detained by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police.
It led to a protest march – demanding justice and for SARS to be disbanded – by thousands of residents in Sagamu, which is about 50km north-east of the commercial capital, Lagos.
At least three people were reported to have died during the protest march, with police saying that they are “still investigating” these claims.
“No father wants to bury his son and this is heartbreaking for my family because Kazeem was on the verge of travelling to Europe for trial,” Fasasi, the father of the late footballer told BBC Sport.
“What happened, why was he killed and how does a family recover from this. These are the questions no one can answer.”
