The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has shut down two Chinese restaurants located in Victoria Island and Mall 33 Aboyade Cole in Lagos, for refusing to serve Nigerians.
It was reported earlier that a Nigerian lady who went to the restaurant to eat with her friend, said they were asked to leave after a waitress disclosed they were ordered not to serve Nigerians.
Serving an update on the complaint, the FCCPC revealed that the facility was shut down after its (restaurant) staff admitted the existence of “non-service to Nigerians”. The commission further revealed that the restaurant ‘Haufei Restaurant’ will be undergoing regulatory action after some FCCPC operatives were subjected to same experience.
Today, FCCPC closed Haufei Restaurant & Mall 33 Aboyade Cole, VI based on credible intel & surveillance that the biz declines service to Nigerians. Staff of the biz admitted this is the policy & our operatives experienced same. Both now closed for further regulatory action.
When asked why a Chinese man is locking up the facility, FCCPC boss Babatunde Iruekera disclosed that the man in the photo is the manager of the restaurant. He further revealed that the Chinese man was supervised while locking up the restaurant after which he surrendered the key.
