Ajisebutu said the suspect was arrested by operatives of the Department of State Service(DSS) and has been handed over to the police.
“The driver, who was suspected to be responsible for the adoption and murder of Ayanwole, who got missing on board a BRT bus on Feb. 26, 2022 has been arrested by operatives of the DSS and has been handed over to the police,” he said.
He reassured the public that the suspect (driver) would soon be arraigned in court.
