Riot Sagamu youths Protest Killing SARS

There is tension in Sagamu, Ogun State at the moment after angry young men and women took to the streets on Monday to register their displeasure over the killing of Tiyamiyu Kazeem by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The soccer player with Remo Stars Football Club popularly known as Kaka was said to have been pushed from a SARS van on motion and onto an oncoming speeding car that eventually killed him.

However, angered by the situation, youths in Sagamu have now taken to the streets to register their frustration, according to Sahara Reporters.
