Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has warned residents against using the death of Bamise Ayanwole to spread false narratives against the government.
The governor, who spoke on Wednesday during a courtesy visit by the executive members of the National Association of Women Judges in Nigeria led by its President, Jumah Sankay, at the Lagos House, Marina, said the government won’t condone people who dine on the sad incident for their selfish reasons.
In a statement titled, ‘Slain BRT Passenger: Lagos’ll not condone purveyors of evil intentions over the incident, Sanwo-Olu warns’, the governor reiterated that justice would be served.
According to him, “It is unfortunate that while the government is providing transportation solution to the teeming population by procuring thousands of buses for citizens to have easy movement from one part of the State to another, we found out that there are some of our citizens that abuse such gestures of government.
“This is an opportunity to warn citizens; people of evil minds, people that have evil intentions, that Lagos will not be home for them any longer.
“Lagos will certainly not tolerate you; condone you or gloss over an incident like this. We must allow the Nigeria Police to do their work because it is a criminal case. We would watch and ensure that justice would be done at the end of the day.
“We know that investigation is ongoing and they (security agencies) have assured us that in the next one or two days, they would go to court; the cases would be held and the full wrath of the law would be administered on people that are found wanting; the driver and other people that might be accomplices in this very unfortunate incident.”
