Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has spoken for the first time since Oluwabamise Ayanwole, a slain 22-year-old lady in the state was found dead days after she went missing after boarding a BRT bus.
In a post on social media late Monday, Sanwo-Olu noted that the life of every Lagosian was important to the government.
He added that his prayers were with the victim’s family, as he assured them that justice will be served.
Sanwo-Olu wrote, “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 stones unturned in the investigations and arrest of everyone found culpable in the kidnap and death of Miss Oluwabamise Ayanwola.
“The driver of the BRT bus involved in this unfortunate incident has been arrested, and the management of Lagos Bus Service Ltd have 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.
“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 investigations 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.”
