Following the death of a Remo Stars Football Club player, Tiyamiyu Kazeem, the IGP Muhammed Adamu, Tuesday, disbanded the Zonal Intervention Squad.

Adamu spoke through the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of Criminal Investigations Department Force Headquarters, Peter Ogunyanwo, when he accompanied Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on a condolence visit to the parents of the deceased in Sagamu.

The IG said the disbandment followed Tiyamiyu’s death in the hands of operatives of the Zonal Intervention Squad, Obada-Oko in Ogun State.

Ogunyanwo noted that the ZIS office would be handed over to Ogun State Police Command.

He also disclosed that a Police Inspector indicted in the matter had been dismissed, while other officers were under investigation.

The DIG, who noted that the death of Kazeem would prompt the Police Force to carry out more reforms, maintained that all officers involved in the circumstances that led to the death of the footballer had been arrested.

He said the ZIS operatives were on illegal duty and did not obtain clearance from the Police formation in Sagamu before they arrested the deceased.

Pledging that full investigation would be carried out to bring those involved to justice, Ogunyanwo promised that police would do everything possible to purge itself of “trigger-happy elements.”

Earlier, Governor Abiodun said every instrument of government available would be used to unearth the circumstances of the killing and crisis that engulfed Sagamu.

Abiodun, who was also accompanied on the condolence visit by the Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, Kenneth Ebrimson, and the State Director of Department of State Services, Mr. David Tuska, pleaded with Sagamu residents not to take laws into their hands, noting that “the future of the state would be secured when people eschew violence and go about their businesses in a lawful manner.”
