Damilola Titilayo Ayanwola, elder sister of the murdered lady on Lagos BRT, Bamise Ayanwola, has revealed how she died in pain. Countering the claim made by Lagos State Police Command, Damilola narrated that the private part of Bamise was cut while she was still alive.
She spoke at a press conference on Tuesday at Ikeja.
Damilola disclosed an elder sister to Bamise who is pregnant, Elizabeth, has been hospitalised.
The Nation reports Bamise, a fashion designer, was found dead on Monday — nine days after she was declared missing after she boarded a bus rapid transit (BRT) vehicle.
The Lagos State Government on Tuesday suspended Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) operations as a precaution after intelligence on “planned attacks” by persons yet to be identified.
The Gani Fawehinmi Park, Ojota, Lagos, was heavily guarded by armed security men officers of the Nigeria Police Force, the Nigerian Army, Department of State Services (DSS) over proposed protest to demand justice for slain Bamise.
But sympathisers in their numbers, besieged Bamise’s residence to condole with the family.
They carried placards with inscriptions “We want Justice for Bamise”, “Do not sweep under the carpet, we want Justice.”
They called on Lagos Governor Sanwo-Olu and the Commissioner of Police to ensure justice is served.
Some activists also stormed the Lagos State House of Assembly with the immediate elder sister of the deceased, Damilola to lament the gruesome murder of Bamise.
