The 22-year-old lady, Oluwabamise Ayanwole, who went missing after boarding a Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) service, has been found dead.
This has resulted in outrage with #JusticeForBamise trending on social media.
It was gathered that Bamise’s corpse was dropped on Lagos Island with some vital organs missing.
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.
Bamise works as a fashion designer at Chevron Estate in Ajah, Lagos, but spends the weekends at Ota, Ogun state, with her sister.
The police in a statement on Saturday confirmed that she was missing. They also assured that an investigation has commenced into the incident.
The police statement also explained that two persons have been arrested in connection with the crime.
“As soon as the report got to the police, the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the lady was immediately initiated.
“To ensure a speedy and diligent investigation, the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, psc, immediately directed the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti to take over the case.
“In the course of an ongoing investigation, two suspects have been arrested and are currently helping in our investigation,” the police statement read in part.
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.

Bamise’s story is so heartbreaking. It is even more worrisome that we don’t know how many people have suffered the same fate as her.
For all we know, there could be more to suffer the same fate and that is because it is hard to get Justice in our society.
