A 91-year-old Roseline Ololo has warned police authorities and Akinwunmi Ambode that she will embark on a massive protest at the Lagos state government house.

Mrs Ololo decided to take such measure over the refusal of the state government to return Metropolitan College and Isolo Secondary School to her.

Daily Times reports that she wrote two separates letters to the governor and to the police through her lawyer Malcolm Omirhobo.

In the letters, Mrs Ololo stated that in 1955 she and her late husband, Michael Ololo, established the schools in Surulere area of Lagos through their company, Akaix West Africa Limited.

“As a result of the foregoing, our client is embarking on a massive rally/protest at the Lagos state government house and environs on Monday, the 21st day of September, 2015.

“Our client shall also seize the opportunity to address a world press conference on her 39 years of agony as a result of the Lagos state government refusal to return her schools to her contrary to the provisions of the law of the land,” the lawyer said.

In 1974, the school was relocated from Surulere to Ire-Akari, Isolo. However, two years later the Lagos state government took over 48 private secondary schools from their owners, including Metropolitan College.

In the process, Isolo Secondary School was carved out of Metropolitan College on the same expanse of land hosting the college.

When Bola Ahmed Tinubu became the governor of Lagos state, he returned the said 48 private schools to their owners. However, Metropolitan College was not returned as the retention of part of the school was against government’s restructuring of the educational system.
