Twitter users react as protesters in Sagamu are allegedly shot dead when residents took to the streets to protest the killing of the footballer Kazeem Tiamiyu aka ‘Kaka’

Nigerians have gone on Twitter to express outrage following reports that at least one protester was shot dead by police and many were injured when Sagamu residents took to the streets to protest SARS brutality.

The citizens came out en masse to protest following the death of footballer Kazeem Tiamiyu, aka “Kaka”, who was killed by a SARS official.

According to reports, SARS operatives allegedly seized Kaka from his car and labelled him an Internet fraudster (Yahoo boy), before shooting him dead.

Kaka’s death led to an outrage and the Ogun State governor, Dr Dapo Abiodun revealed on Twitter that he has instructed the “commissioner of police to ensure that culprit gets arrested & brought to book accordingly.”

He added: “As at this morning, I can confirm that the perpetrator has since been arrested, as directed by me.”

The Ogun State governor’s assurance that the perpetrator has been arrested did not appease angry residents. They took to the streets to protest the killings and this led to more rounds of violence as police opened fire on protesters, killing at least one person and causing injury to others.

Some claim more than one person was killed in the protest.
