The Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) driver, Andrew Nice Omininikoron, accused of murdering 22-year-old fashion designer, Oluwabamise Ayanwola, will be arraigned today (on Tuesday) before a Lagos High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) area of the state.
It was gathered that the suspect would be arraigned before Justice Sherifat Sonaike on a four-count charge of conspiracy, murder, and two counts of rape. The arraignment follows legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution, Dr Jide Martins, recommending the prosecution of the BRT driver.
Bamise went missing after boarding the BRT bus on Saturday, February 26. She was said to have boarded the bus which was going to Oshodi at about 7pm at Chevron Bus-stop. Until her death, she worked as a fashion designer at Chevron Estate in Ajah, Lagos, but spent the weekends at Ota, Ogun State, with her sister. Sadly, her body was found dumped by the roadside on Carter Bridge, Lagos Island.
The police, who confirmed the incident, said an unidentified man reportedly informed officials of the Ebute Ero Police Station about the incident. The corpse was later taken to the Mainland Hospital Mortuary.
