Following the killing of a former player of Remo Stars Football Club, Kazeem Tiamiyu, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has disbanded the 12 Zonal Intervention Squad (ZIS).
Tiamiyu was killed on Saturday, February 22, after being allegedly pushed out of a moving police vehicle by the operatives who had arrested him and were taking him to Abeokuta, the state capital.
The ZIS operatives, a special unit under the assistant inspector-general of police Zone II, have been operating around border communities of Lagos and Ogun states, Channels TV reports.
The disbandment of the unit was announced by the deputy inspector-general of police, Peter Ogunyanwo, on Tuesday, February 25, during a condolence visit to the state governor, Dapo Abiodun.
Legit.ng gathered that Ogunyanwo explained the decision is part of ongoing reforms aimed at repositioning the police for service delivery.
“The death of your son has played a role in getting some of our zonal offices reorganised. Our concern now is justice for the deceased, how do we get it? If we don’t have adequate information as to what actually happened, we will not be able to get justice for the deceased and he will not forgive us wherever he is,” he said.
Governor Abiodun while commiserating with the family of late Tiamiyu, said no stone would be left unturned during the investigation.
“Please accept our deepest condolences. This incident has caused all of us a lot of pain and it is highly regrettable and most unfortunate.
“Since this event happened, we have left no stone unturned to investigate the root cause of this problem,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Ogun state governor made it clear that the culprits behind the shocking and untimely death of former Remo Stars footballer Kazeem would be brought to book.
