Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham Ajewole sympathized with the family of Ayanwole Oluwabamise who was kidnapped in Lagos BRT.
“It is sad enough that Nigeria is not safe but to think that a place or thing considered as property like BRT is now considered a dangerous place should all get all of us concerned. But I have few questions for Lagos State Government, why are the BRT buses not fitted with CCTV cameras? What measure have you put in place since this incident that made you assure Lagosians that the BRT buses are now safe?
Are we truly safe or your speech is just government rhetoric, telling us what we want to hear?
Lagosians, please be careful, we cannot move about like everything is okay. Things are not okay if we are not safe inside government buses.
And to the family of Ayanwole Oluwabamise I sympathize with you. Some of us will reach out to see how you can go through this phase with some measure of ease-no easy way in grieve. May God truly console you.
This is such a sad incident!”
Also, a former Vice-president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has described the murder of Oluwabamise Ayanwole as heartbreaking.

The 22-year-old went missing after boarding a Lagos Bus Rapid Transit vehicle and was later found dead.
Reacting to the reports, Atiku joined the campaign for justice for Oluwabamise.
He said: “The reports of the murder of 22-year-old Miss Oluwabamise Ayanwole, who went missing on a Lagos Bus Rapid Transit vehicle, are heartbreaking. The act of taking the life of another human under any circumstance is despicable. I hope that the culprit(s) will be brought to book.
