Bamise: Lagosians mandate Sanwo-Olu to find killers of 22-year-old lady

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has come under attack following the death of 22-year old Oluwabamise Ayanwola.

Bamise, who was reported missing after boarding a BRT bus from Chevron Bus stop was found dead on Carter Bridge by Ogogoro community in Lagos Island, Police spokesman Adekunle Ajisebutu confirmed.

Bamise’s case went viral after her mother in a video called on the government to help save her daughter.

She had boarded a BRT bus with number 240257 at Chevron Bus stop en route Oshodi when she sensed danger and asked her friends to pray for her.

Lagos residents demanding justice for Bamise called on Sanwo-Olu to take charge of the case.

Lamenting the increasing level of insecurity in the state, Nigerians wondered what form of transport is safe if a citizen can be kidnapped in a government-owned transport.

Here are some comments;

@Trendwithola “Dear Gov. Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, the death of Bamise should never be swept under the carpet like the death of the innocent #EndSARS protesters. We would not give up on both. What is now safe? Ordinary BRT from #LEKKI. This is so scary.”

@FalanaAdeniyi “They kidnapped and killed Bamise Ayanwole and took her body parts. This is the height for me. The BRT driver “Nice Andrew Omininikoron” with bus number 240257 is nowhere to be found. Sanwo-Olu, Police must do something oh.”

@UnlimitedEniola “Bamise Ayanwole has been found dead. Some claimed parts of her body are missing. We are expecting the Lagos State government and the police to do the needful and fish out her killer.”

@SavvyRinu “Bamise entered a BRT in Lagos and never came out alive. The state government in charge of security has kept mum till now.”

@Sardney “Bamise deserves to live, all she wanted was to cater for herself and family. The state public transport is meant to be the safest form in any working community, sadly reverse is the case. You’d be surprised at how many innocent Lagosians have gone missing.”

@TunnyKvng “Bamise took the necessary precautions. She entered a relatively ‘safe’ BRT bus, called friends, took pictures and videos and yet she was killed in cold blood. Nigeria failed her. RIP Bamise.”

@AmakaEze “Bamise wasn’t chilling with Big Boys yet this, So Brt is no longer safe, seems the Nigerian government want girls to start equipping themselves with self-defence equipment. This is so sad, Chevron Lekki is a no-no, her killers must be exposed.”

@Novieverest “Young ladies are abducted and killed because they follow rich men that are not in their class.”No, young women are killed because society isn’t safe and justice never prevails. Bamise was in a government-owned BRT.”

@Remmzor “People are running away from one chance and all not knowing Government-owned (and registered) buses are the new way to carry out their evil doings. May God forgive Bamise and grant her peace.”

@Lollypeezle “BRT was supposed to fade Danfo and Okada away while reducing one chance, kidnapping and robbery. Saddening that the same BRT has been compromised. Those who killed Bamise must not go free. LAMATA and LBSL must not go scot-free.”
