Arrested BRT driver, Andrew Nice Omininikoron, has been filmed giving a statement that contradicts his previous statement about what happened to Oluwabamise Toyosi Ayanwole.
In a statement televised on Monday, March 7, Andrew had claimed that he picked up 22-year-old Bamise at Chevron Lekki then later picked up three other young men.
He claimed the men showed him a weapon during the journey and ordered him to park on Carter Bridge. They then got down, dragging Bamise with them.
He said he was too afraid so couldn’t do much to help.
He didn’t have a coherent answer when asked why he didn’t report the incident immediately.
Now, a video has shown the initial interview Andrew granted following his arrest.
In it, he made no mention of three men with guns.
He claimed in the video that Bamise threw herself out of the moving bus.
He added that her actions had to do with the “dirty acts” he had done
Andrew said: “She forced herself out of the back door.
“She was crying for help, and everything was recorded.
“Because of the dirty acts I’ve done… I’m afraid.”
Andrew Nice Omininikoron is the driver of the BRT bus that 22-year-old Toyosi Ayanwole boarded before she was found dead.
Bamise had sent videos and voice notes to friends to express concern about her safety while going home in the state-owned bus driven by Andrew.
