The Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, has urged youths and residents of Sagamu to remain calm and maintain peace, following the passing away of a Remo Stars player, Tiamiyu Kazeem, popularly known as Kaka.
Oba Ajayi stated this at a closed door meeting with youths and protesters, who took to the streets, condemning the death of the player.
He eulogized the late player as a great man, with great potential for the development of the community, urging them not to take laws into their hands, as proper action was being taken.
