The family of late Bamise Aysnwole, has applied for an injunction to prosecute the Bus Rapid Transit driver , Andrew Ominikoron , allegedly involved in their daughter’s untimely death.

The application was filed by the attorney for the family , Adesina Ogunlana.

The report partly read , We have been briefed by the family of late Bamise Ayanwola, the young lady murdered on February 26, 2022, aboard a Bus Rapid Transit vehicle to act as their solicitors.

“We have their further instructions to apply to your office for fiat to prosecute the criminal charge preferred against one Andrew Nice Ominikoron presently before Hon. Justice Serifat Sonaike of the Lagos State High Court.

Bamise’s parents are reportedly concerned about state government’s officials handling the prosecution case , expressing their wish to have an autonomous body to oversee the prosecution.

“The family has formally expressed their wish to have a more independent body to conduct the prosecution in the circumstances of the matter.

“In their view, a Lagos State Government’s agency and officials are involved in the matter and may not be reasonably expected to act as the prosecutor adequately against themselves.
“In addition, the family is concerned that the charges against the defendant also include allegations of rape of another person, an incident distinct and separate from that of the deceased’s family member.

“This situation may result in an unnecessary complication. We look forward to a positive and timeous consideration of our request.

The 22-year-old fashion designer, Bamise, was found dead in Lagos after boarding a Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, bus heading to Oshodi from Chevron bus stop, Lekki. She was said to have been raped before being killed. Her corpse was later found on the Carter Bridge.
