The mother, Ayanwole Comfort, and father of 22-year-old murdered Bamise have both spoken amid great tears in a video.
In a video interview with BBC News Pidgin, the mother crying hard said that her child is not a wayward daughter. The mother said people can go ask from her former bosses to confirm what she said.
My child is well-behaved
The bereaved mother stated that all her neighbours know how well-behaved her child is. She added that it was even a good thing that her child bought a smartphone on credit.
Bamise’s mum said that if she never had a smartphone, the secret of how she got murdered in a government-owned bus will not have been revealed.
The woman asked people to help her as she wondered why a bus that should be the safest in the state became a tool for such a grievous crime.
I wanted to reap the fruit of my labour
The woman said she said needs people to help her seek justice so that the issue would not be handled with levity. She lamented and stated that she was expecting to be blessed through her children when they eventually make it in life.
Bamise’s father revealed that his wife and other children have been in a pool of tears since the lady’s death. The man called the Lagos state government and governor to do something urgent about the mess.
