According to an eyewitness, 22-year-old Oluwabamise Toyosi Ayanwole was still alive after she was allegedly tossed out of a BRT bus but Good Samaritans were prevented from taking her to the hospital.
Bamise was on her way home from work on Feb. 26, when she boarded a BRT bus at Chevron, Lekki, to take her to Oshodi.
During the journey, she became suspicious as the driver didn’t carry any other passengers and she was alone on the bus.
She had called a friend to express her concerns and did a video telling her friend that she was afraid before she was later found dead. Her friend had advised her to get down at the next bus stop, rather than continue to Oshodi.
Unfortunately, Bamise was found dead in Ebute Ero.
Residents claim she was thrown out of a BRT bus and the bus zoomed off with a jeep following it.
