The unfortunate incident was confirmed by the victim’s relative in the early hours of today.
“We are at the morgue. We have confirmed the corpse,” the emotional relative said.

The corpse was later taken to the Mainland Hospital mortuary.
“An autopsy will be carried out to confirm if any part of her body is missing,” the relative told confirmed to newsmen.
KOKO TV Nigeria had reported how Ayanwola got missing while returning to Ota from Ajah on Saturday, February 26. The deceased boarded a BRT bus with number 240257 going to Oshodi at about 7 p.m. at Chevron Bus-Stop.
According to information gathered, the deceased worked as a Fashion Designer at Chevron Estate, Ajah and spent weekends at Ota, Ogun State, with her sister.
Sensing danger as the bus did not pick any other passenger at subsequent bus stops, Oluwabamise had engaged a friend using voice notes on her phone.
She told her friend to pray for her as she became suspicious of the bus driver and in response, the friend told her to alight at Oworonsoki bus stop, before Oshodi.
Oluwabamise had also sent a video to her friend showing how dark it was in the bus and said, “There are three men and one woman in the bus. The woman is sitting at the back. That’s the number of the bus in case. Please pray for me.’’
That was the last that was heard from Oluwabamise, according to her mother. The Police are now in search of the BRT driver who is reportedly at large.
