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 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.

BRT driver narrates how it happened
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that while the public continues to demand that justice be served in the murder of Bamise who went missing and was later found dead after boarding a BRT, the bus driver narrated what happened on that day.
The driver identified as Andrew absolved himself of having anything to do with the murder stating that he ran away out of fear.
Andrew said he was under duress as one of the men who had a gun gave him instructions on where to stop and the route to follow.
