The driver of the Bus Rapid Transit bus where Oluwabamise Ayanwole, a 22-year-old lady, got missing, has been arrested.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed this, adding that “details will be provided later.”
The driver was on the run when the news broke. The police had arrested his guarantor while tracking him.
Ayanwola was said to be returning to Ota from Ajah on Saturday, February 26, when she boarded the BRT bus en route to Oshodi around 7pm at Chevron bus stop.
Sensing danger as the bus did not pick any other passenger at subsequent bus stops, Oluwabamise reportedly engaged a friend using voice notes on her phone.
The voice notes indicated that the bus driver said he liked Oluwabamise and asked for her name and other details.
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, way before Oshodi.
But that never happened, has she was murdered and dumped with part of her body missing.
