Bamise Ayanwole’s death: Why BRT bus didn’t have inbuilt camera – Sanwo-Olu

The late Oluwabamishe Ayanwole boarded a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) that was locally supplied and did not have an embedded camera, according to Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Oluwabamise had just finished work and was on her way to see her brother, Pelumi, when she boarded the bus near Chevron Bus-stop in the state’s Lekki district on February 26.

However, the 22-year-old was murdered inside the car.

Omininikoron Nice, the bus driver, has already been detained and is being held in police custody.

Sanwo-Olu stated that investigations are underway and that the bus that Bamise boarded did not have an embedded camera.

He stated this while briefing reporters on Tuesday at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan to commemorate International Women’s Day.

“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.
