The Lagos Bus Services Limited has paid the N500,000 mortuary bill of late Bamise Ayanwola, who was allegedly killed by a Bus Rapid Transit driver, Nice Omininikoron.
PUNCH Metro had reported that the deceased’s elder brother, Pelumi, lamented that the head of the Lagos Mainland Hospital mortuary called his elder brother, Oluwatobi, to inform him that nobody had checked on the corpse or paid anything after the autopsy was carried out.
He claimed that the bill, which was accumulating, was already over N500,000 and wondered how the family would raise the money.
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, on Wednesday, said the bill had been settled.
He said, “The Lagos Bus Services Limited has paid the money. Nobody told them; the person who took the body there was called that the bill was ready, and instead of the person to report to the LBSL, he went to report to a newspaper.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr Abdul-Azeez Adediran, aka Jandor, has also given over N500, 000 to the family for the mortuary bill.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported on Thursday that Adediran, after a meeting of his representative and the deceased’s family members at the Liberty House, Ikeja, said he was touched by the family’s pain.
The family was said to have commended Adediran, saying he had been in contact with Bamise’s parents since the incident happened.NAN
