Gentlemen of the press, I welcome you to this press briefing taking place today at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja.

We are saddened by the death of Oluwabamise Ayanwole, the 22-year-old lady who was abducted while travelling in a BRT bus from the Chevron area, Lekki to Osodi on 26th February 2022.

As soon as the report was received by the police, detectives were dispatched and search parties organised to trace the whereabouts of the missing lady. We were also in synergy with other relevant strategic partners with the determination and strength within our capacity to unravel the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the innocent, promising young lady.

Sadly, while an intensive investigation was ongoing, information was received that the victim’s lifeless body was found on the Carter Bridge by Ogogoro Community, Lagos Island. The corpse has since been recovered and deposited at the mortuary of the Mainland Hospital, Yaba, for autopsy.

While our operatives were working tirelessly and were almost closing on the suspect in his criminal hideout in Ogun State, information was received from our sister agency, the DSS that he had been arrested by their operatives.

The arrest of the suspects consoles us because concerted efforts of the police and our strategic partners eventually yielded the desired result.

The suspect, Andrew Nice ‘m’ aged 47 was subsequently handed over to the police for further necessary actions.

As the suspect is being paraded today, we want to assure the public and indeed the bereaved family of the victim that justice will be served in this case. May we also use this medium to sound a note of warning to criminal elements in the state that no crime will go undetected and that criminals will not go unpunished.

The command has strengthened its security architecture and repositioned officers and men towards providing adequate and sustainable security for all and sundry in the state. This, we are confident, will prevent future occurrence of this sad incident.
