The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Nice Andrew Omininikoron, the driver of Bus Rapid Transit in whose bus a 22-year-old lady, Oluwabamise Ayanwola got missing. 
Oluwabamise’s relative had on Monday said the lady who was declared missing last week. 


She was later found dead.
“We are at the morgue. We have confirmed the corpse.
“An autopsy will be carried out to confirm if any part of her body is missing,” one of her relations earlier said.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the driver has been arrested. 
“The driver of the BRT has been arrested. Details later,” he said.
The young lady went missing on February 26, 2022, after she boarded a BRT with number 240257 heading to Oshodi at about 7:30 pm to see her sister-in-law, who was said to be in labour.
The fashion designer was said to have become suspicious when the driver of the bus told her to sit at the back despite being the only one in the vehicle.
“When she entered the BRT bus, it was only her, and there was no light inside the bus. She had felt safe inside the BRT since it is a popular state bus, but she wondered why it was only her that was in the bus and the driver didn’t pick any other passenger.
“She was even conversing with a colleague of hers because she felt unsafe. She was sending voice notes to her friend. Her friend advised her to drop since the driver didn’t pick up any other passenger.
“Before entering, she informed her friend that the driver was passing some remarks at her but she didn’t answer.
“So later on, the driver later picked up three people on the road: two men and a lady. Then she now felt calm.
“Before the driver picked the three other persons who had disguised as passengers, she made several videos of the bus and the driver and sent it to her friend. The video captured the bus number. It helped us in tracking the bus.
“Her phone was not ‘low’. It is a new phone she just bought three weeks ago. Her friend chatted with her several times, but she didn’t reply.
“She tried calling her via normal call a few minutes to 8 pm, but she didn’t pick up.
“Around 7:32 pm, she posted ‘God, it is your protection I need’ on her WhatsApp status.
“I saw the status but I didn’t see it on time because I was not online.
“After repeated calls, her friend said she heard some voices underneath trying to struggle to get the phone from her,” sister of the victim, Elizabeth, revealed.
