Kazeem Tiyamiyu was killed during a faceoff with SARS officials last Saturday, February 22nd.

He was reportedly picked up by SARS officials on his way home from training with a colleague.

He was accused of being an internet Fraudster (Yahoo boy).

Tiamiyu reportedly identified himself as a footballer as the SARS operatives were taking him to their office in Abeokuta and he was allegedly pushed out from the SARS vehicle by the officers.

An oncoming vehicle crushed him to death on the Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway.
