The driver of a Bus Rapid Transit, which was boarded by the murdered 22-year-old fashion designer, Oluwabamise Ayanwole, has been arrested in Ogun State.
A confirmed source told Newsacross that the suspect, who disappeared into thin air after the incident, was arrested by a Department of State Service (DSS) operative in the Odogbolu area of Ogun state.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu, had told Newsacross.com that the police also arrested two persons linked to the driver.
Oluwabamise’s body was found along the Carter Bridge by Ogogoro Community and has been deposited in the mortuary.
The young lady went missing on Saturday, February 26, while returning to Ota from Ajah. She boarded a BRT bus with number 240257 going to Oshodi at about 7 p.m. at Chevron Bus-Stop.
Until her death, she worked as a fashion designer at Chevron Estate in Ajah, Lagos, but spent the weekends at Ota, Ogun state, with her sister.
This has resulted in outrage with #JusticeForBamise trending on social media.
Sadly, her body was found dumped by the roadside, and an unidentified man reportedly informed officials of Ebute Ero Police Station on Saturday evening.
The corpse was later taken to the Mainland Hospital mortuary.
