Bamise boarded one of this BRT bus on Saturday, February 26, 2022 from Chevron to Oshodi around 7pm but she got missing and her corpse was found on Carter bridge at Ogogoro community, Lagos Island with parts missing, on Monday, March 7, 2022.

Sanwo-Olu said, “In all of our BRT buses that we procured two and a half years ago, all of them have CCTV cameras and trackers. However the additional ones that we bought locally last year are the ones we have not installed CCTV cameras.

“Because you need to do a lot of configuration before you can put CCTV cameras in them so we are speaking with the manufacturers of that. I don’t need to mention names but they were purchased locally. That is the unfortunate one this particular incident happened.”

He also advised that passengers should avoid boarding BRT buses that do not have their lights including the radar lights that does not display destinations.

He said, “Any bus that has its inner lights on at night is certainly still on service. Once the lights are off and the radar in the bus is not displaying, people should desist from boarding such a bus, because it is no longer in service at that period.

“By that time, the checker and conductor would have been out of the bus, except the driver who is expected to take the empty bus back to their yards,”
