Following the killing of the assistant captain of Remo Stars Football Club in Sagamu, the Ogun State Police Command has suggested that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) operative involved be dismissed on the basis of lack of professionalism.
Meanwhile, there were protests in some parts of the state, as people took to the street to show their displeasure while condemning the act and demanding for justice.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the State Police Public Relations Officer, stated that the police already paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased and assured that thorough investigation will be carried out.
He 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.
“Because there are lots of misnomers in this issue; first, he 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.
“Also, 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.”
