The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday revealed that the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that the late Oluwabamishe Ayanwole boarded doesn’t have an in-built camera.
The Lagos State Governor made the revelation while briefing newsmen at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan to commemorate International Women’s Day.
According to him, the particular bus is one of the locally-built ones brought in to augment those imported for the BRT service.
Governor Sanwo-Olu however assured that justice will be done on the matter and those responsible for the death of the 22-year-old fashion designer will pay for their actions.
“There were inbuilt cameras and trackers in buses procured abroad for BRT operations. But those acquired locally to shore up the BRT fleet did not have cameras.
“The particular bus in which the slain victim rode was one of the buses locally supplied,” a statement signed by Sanwo-Olu’s spokesman, Gboyega Akosile, read.
Meanwhile, the driver of the bus, Omininikoron Nice, which Bamise boarded on February 26 has since been arrested and is in police custody.
The Lagos State Police Command said Nice was arrested in a hideout in Ogun State.
The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, made this known on Monday during a parade of the suspect at the command headquarters.
Alabi stated that Andrew was arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, shortly after the lifeless body of Bamise was found and identified.
The police boss stated that Bamise’s corpse was found lying on the Carter Bridge by Ogogoro community in the Lagos Island area of the state.
