What could have turned into an ugly incident at the free Hon Ajani Owolabi summer lesson was averted thanks to the quick intervention of Hon Ajani after he received a distress call from parents, pupils and residents of the Lagos Mainland Constituency that hoodlums and thugs from a political group still bitter about his emergence during the last election are bent on crippling his administration , making it ungovernable for him and threatened to attack innocent pupils attending the free summer coaching, thereby forcing the Principal to lock up the school and advised pupils to return home.
According to reports, students who arrived at the center for the free summer coaching in buses made available by Hon Ajani Owolabi representing Lagos Mainland 1in Lagos State House of Assembly were prevented from going inside. Those who came earlier were also restricted, which was very unusual.

He ensured the reopening of the school for the pupils to return to their classes.

He asserted that henceforth and throughout the summer coaching, officers from Iponri police station would be stationed at the center to protect them.
