A 22-year-old lady, Miss Oluwabamise Ayanwole, who got missing after boarding a Lagos Bus Rapid Transit vehicle (BRT) bus, has been found dead.

The corpse was found lying on the Carter Bridge by Ogogoro Community, Lagos Lagos Island, Lagos State Police spokesman Adekunle Ajisebutu said in a statement.

The police disclosed that the corpse has been deposited at the morgue of the Mainland Hospital, Yaba, for autopsy.

Police said it has contacted her family members who have identified the corpse as that of Oluwabamise Ayanwole, the lady earlier declared missing.

Ayanwola got missing while returning to Ota from Ajah on Saturday, February 26 when she boarded a BRT bus with number 240257 going to Oshodi at about 7:00pm. at Chevron Bus-Stop.

It was gathered that the victim worked as a Fashion Designer at Chevron Estate, Ajah and spent weekends at Ota, Ogun State, with her sister.

Ayanwola sensed danger as the bus did not pick any other passenger at subsequent bus stops, Oluwabamise had engaged a friend using voice notes on her phone.

She told her friend to pray for her as she became suspicious of the bus driver and in response, the friend told her to alight at Oworonsoki bus stop — before Oshodi bus stop.

Oluwabamise had also sent a video to her friend showing how dark it was in the bus where “there are three men and one woman in the bus. The woman is sitting at the back. That’s the number of the bus in case.”

“Please pray for me,” she told her friend.

The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, said he is saddened by this incident and, therefore, expresses, on behalf of the management, officers and men of the command, his heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family.

“Notwithstanding the death of Oluwabamise, the detectives handling the case would not rest on their oars until her killers are found,” Alabi said.
