92-year old widow challenges Ambode in court

06 April 2016, 11:42

Lagos - A 92-year old widow, Roseline Ololo, has sued the Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to the Federal High Court, Lagos, seeking the return of her schools back to her.

Ololo instituted a fundamental rights action against the governor, saying she founded Metropolitan College and Isolo Secondary School in Lagos.

Joined as respondents in the suit are the Federal Government of Nigeria, the Attorney General of the Federation, the Minister of Education, the Lagos State Government, Lagos State Attorney General, and the Lagos State Commissioner for Education.

Ololo is praying the court for a declaration that the refusal by the Lagos State Government to return her school is unjust, unconstitutional, illegal and unlawful.

According to her deposed affidavit, Ololo stated that she, and Akaihieobi, her husband (now deceased), moved from Eastern Nigeria to Lagos colony in 1940, and 12 years later incorporated a company, Akaix Africa Ltd, with which they established Metropolitan College.
