Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reacted to the murder of Oluwabamise Toyosi Ayanwole, who was found dead after boarding a BRT bus on her way home from work.
The Lagos State Governor condoled with the family of the deceased and promised that the state will leave no stone unturned in investigating Bamise’s death.
“I hereby give you my word that justice will be served,” he added.
Bamise, 22, boarded the state-owned bus, BRT, on Feb. 26 while on her way home from work.
During the trip from Lekki to Oshodi, she made a call to someone to complain that she felt uneasy about being in the bus.
She recorded a video to show the person on the other end of the call the dark, empty bus and she asked them to pray for her.
That was the last her family heard from her.
A week passed and her family members went to a BRT bus park to search for the bus she made the video from.
Bamise’s family created a scene at the park and it went viral and finally led to answers.
Ebute Ero residents said Bamise was thrown out of a moving bus on the same day she was last heard from.
Some claim her body was mutilated, with some of her parts missing.
Bamise’s family visited the Ebute Ero police station today and they were taken to the mortuary to identify her body.
Meanwhile, the driver of the BRT bus has been arrested.
He claims he picked up Bamise and some other men who then pointed a gun at him and asked him to stop at Carter Bridge.
He claims they then asked him to open the door and they dragged Bamise out with them.
He claims he was too afraid to act.
