Lagos Launches Whistle-Blower Initiative To Curb Fraud, Revenue Leakages

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Monday expressed sadness over the death of Oluwabamise Ayanwole, who earlier was declared missing after boarding a Lagos Bus Rapid Transit.

Sanwo-Olu in a post on Instagram noted that the life of Lagosians is important to the government and it will not take the security of the people for granted.

He promised that no stones would be left unturned in the investigations and arrest of anyone involved in the death of Ayanwole.

The Governor of Lagos State vowed that justice will be served, adding that his prayer is with the family of the 22-year-old.

The statement reads, “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 Ayanwole.

“The driver of the BRT bus involved in this unfortunate incident has been arrested, and the management of Lagos Bus Service Ltd has 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 Ayanwole family. May Oluwabamise’s soul Rest In Peace. Amen.”

This is coming after the fashion designer was declared dead by a relative to the deceased.
