Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has vowed that killers of Oluwabamise Ayanwole would be brought to book and that nothing would be swept under the carpet.
Oluwabamise, 22, was kidnapped inside a BRT bus and murdered, with her body dumped on Carter Bridge.
The prime suspect, Andrew Nice, who drove the BRT has been arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, and handed over to the police for investigation and prosecution.
Reacting to the development in series of tweets late Monday night, Sanwo-Olu said the life of every citizen of the state mattered to government.
“Dear Lagosians, the life of every citizen of the state matters to us, and we do not take the security of our people for granted.
“We will therefore leave no stone unturned in the investigation and arrest of everyone found culpable in the kidnap and death of Oluwabamise Ayanwola.
“The driver of the BRT bus involved in this unfortunate incident has been arrested, and Lagos Bus Service Ltd have been directed to cooperate with security agencies in their investigations, so that the full weight of the law is brought down on all involved in this ugly incident,” he tweeted.
Sanwo-Olu added: “To Oluwabamise’s family and loved ones, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time, may the Almighty God console you. I hereby give you my word that JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED.
“To fellow Lagosians, I assure you that I am following all the investigation closely, and will ensure that Oluwabamise gets the justice she deserves.
“I also assure you all that the BRT services remain safe, despite this condemnable act. Once again, my sincere condolences to the Ayanwola family. May Oluwabamise’s soul Rest In Peace. Amen.”
