Court orders hearing notice on FG, Lagos over seized schools
Justice Hadiza Shagari of the Federal High Court, Lagos, yesterday ordered that a hearing notice be issued to the defendants in the suit filed by a nonagenarian, Mrs. Roseline Ololo seeking the return of her schools taken over by Lagos state government.
The defendants are the Federal Government of Nigeria, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the Minister of Education, Lagos State Government, Lagos State Attorney-General and the Lagos State Commissioner for Education.
The plaintiff is praying the Court for an order, returning her schools, Metropolitan College and Isolo Secondary School, which were taken by Lagos State Government, to her as founder.
The 92 year-old widow filed the action for Enforcement of her Fundamental Human Rights as enshrined in Chapter 4 of the 1999 Constitution as amended. She sued for herself and her company, Akaix West Africa Ltd, through her counsel, Chief Malcolm Omirhobo. She is also praying the court for a declaration that the refusal by the Lagos State Government to return her schools is unjust, unconstitutional, illegal and unlawful.
