He added;

The driver of the BRT bus involved in this unfortunate incident has been arrested, and the management of Lagos Bus Service Ltd has been directed to cooperate fully with security agencies in their investigations so that the full weight of the law is brought down on everyone involved in this ugly incident.

Governor Sanwo-Olu assured Lagosians that the BRT services remain safe, despite the condemnable act.

Ms Ayanwola went missing for days after boarding a BRT. She was found dead at Carter Bridge at Ogogoro Community, Lagos, with her body mutilated.

The bus driver, Nice Andrew Omininikoron, suspected of kidnapping the victim, was arrested on Monday.

Mr Omininikoron was arrested at his hiding place at Ososa, Ogun, by the SSS. However, the driver claimed he did not abduct and murder the passenger, claiming that his bus was hijacked by three armed men who threatened to kill him.

The driver said he picked Ms Ayanwola from Chevron, and three male passengers later joined the bus.

Mr Omininikoron claimed that the men pointed guns at him and told him to cooperate while the deceased cried for help.

When asked why he fled instead of reporting to the police, the driver kept mum. The BRT driver claimed he thought the deceased was still in the vehicle when he drove off because he saw her hold on to the iron in the vehicle while the kidnappers were dragging her.

He stated;

I picked her from Chevron, and the other three guys at …when those guys showed me his weapon as I was inside, I can’t be myself anymore. Fears have come in, so, whatever the man with the gun told me, is what I do. When I followed that Carter Bridge, after that overhead bridge, they ordered me to stop there.

Continuing, he stated;

They said I should open the door when I opened the door, then when they came down, they now started dragging her. When I saw that she was crying for help, actually, I was helpless.

So I was thinking that she is inside the vehicle holding the iron. I moved on. I left her at that side; I never knew they dragged her out of the vehicle. I have no connection with any one of them.
