From Babalola Gafar,
 Abeokuta


Governor  Dapo Abiodun on Sunday assured that the killer of Remo Stars Football Club player, Kazeem Tiamiyu, popularly called Kaka, would not go unpunished.

Abiodun urged residents of Ogun State to remain calm and not resort to unlawful acts in respect of the death of Kaka and similar other incidents in the state, saying a full investigation would be launched into the reported shootings and killing by security agents.

The Governor in a release by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, described the killing of the soccer star as unfortunate and urged  the players, management and supporters of Remo Stars Football Club to remain calm.

He said the killers would be unravelled and brought to justice. 

He expressed shock at the details of the tragic incident,  assuring that a proper, transparent and independent investigation would be launched immediately into the two incidents in order to know what transpired with a view to bringing the perpetrators to justice.

The Governor eulogised the late player as a young man with great potentials for the development of the State and the nation in general.

He said that his Government would never take with levity, the lives and property of the good people of Ogun State, admitting that the first business of Government was security and welfare of the citizens of  State. 

He added that the case of Kaka would not be an exception. 

"Kaka’s unfortunate case will not be swept under the carpet," he said.
He, however, called on everyone to maintain peace and calm during the investigation and be confident that anyone found culpable would be brought to book according to laid down laws.

He also sympathised with the two persons hospitalised as a result of the Thursday shooting at Olomoore market Abeokuta by men of anti-cultism team of Ogun State police command.

The Police, he said, confirmed their reported death was a rumour. 

While expressing disappointment at the handling of the matter, Gov Abiodun said the two victims are said to be alive and responding to treatment at the state general hospital, Ijaiye Abeokuta.

He assured the people that justice would be sought for victims in respect of the two incidents and sanctions would be appropriately met out to those found culpable to serve as a deterrence to trigger-happy security people.
