According to him, Sanwo-Olu said that if BRT drivers turn off the interior lights, the buses are to return to their yard empty.
“Any bus that has interior lighting on at night is undoubtedly still in use today. Once the lights go out, and the bus radar is no longer displayed, people should refrain from boarding the bus as it is no longer active at this time.
By that time, the inspector and the driver had already stepped off the bus, except for the driver who was to return the empty bus to their yards,” said the governor.
Sanwo-Olu said the circumstances of Ayanwole’s death while driving the BRT bus are being carefully investigated, stressing that anyone found guilty of what he calls “criminal and secret crimes” will face severe punishment.
“There is an ongoing investigation, and as it is a criminal case, only the police have the constitutional powers to fully disclose all the events that led to the woman’s death. Development was condemned at the highest level of government. I blame this and offer my condolences to the family of our citizen Oluwabamishe.
I’ve been reading some narratives and social media attributions over the last few hours. Some people are deliberately and extremely sensational and write that the Lagos Government is trying to hide something, even my person. These people trivialize life, which makes it seem to me that they just want to earn. These people are mean and have no conscience.
Our government is certainly not deterred by such bad stories. We make sure that we get to the bottom of the matter in a transparent manner. As a result, the police and the Department of State Services (DSS) took the driver who had fled to another state where he was arrested. The full wrath of the law will be applied to every one guilty in this matter. And we will make sure that the incident does not repeat itself. “
Sanwo-Olu expressed his belief that the police were able to conduct a thorough investigation and uncover the person or group of people behind the death of the bus passenger.
