Justice for Bamise: Magistrate court to arraign arrested bus driver today

The Magistrate Court in Yaba will arraign Andrew Nice, the suspected murderer of 22 year old Oluwabamise Ayanwole.

Counsel for the family of the deceased, Ayo Ademiluyi, made this known in a statement on Friday, while urging interested persons to make it to court where the arraignment would commence by 12 noon.

In light of this recent event, another female passenger who has chosen to remain anonymous alleges of being raped by said driver, on the bus.

It was gathered that the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Adekunle Ajisebutu, announced on Monday that the dead body of Bamise was found where suspected ritualists dumped the dismembered and uncompleted remains of the lady on the Carter Bridge by Ogogoro Community.

Recall that Bamise got missing while returning to Ota from Ajah on February 26 when she boarded a BRT bus with number 240257 going to Oshodi at about 7pm at Chevron Bus-Stop.

The victim, who worked as a fashion designer in Ajah spent her weekends in Ota, Ogun State, with her sister, had sent some voice notes to a friend when she sensed danger on the bus.

The friend had escalated the matter and it attracted widespread condemnation with many Nigerians calling on security agents to fish out the perpetrators and rescue Bamise.

On Monday, the Department of State Services arrested Andrew Nice, the driver of the BRT that the victim boarded. Nice was arrested in Ogun State at his hideout as a fugitive.

Viral videos show that the driver when apprehended by the state police confessed to having raped the deceased but in a follow-up video there was no incident of such.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, had said the Babajide Sanwo-Olu government has a lot of questions to answer and therefore urged the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to take up the case for justice to be served.
