FG shuts down Chinese restaurant that refused to serve Nigerians in Lagos


Two Chinese restaurants located in Victoria Island and Mall 33 Aboyade Cole in Lagos have been shut down by the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) for refusing to serve Nigerians.

Recall that a Nigerian lady had earlier expressed her grievances after she went to the restaurant to eat with her friend and they were asked to leave after a waitress disclosed they were ordered not to serve Nigerians.

Following the complaint, the FCCPC disclosed 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.

FCCPC tweeted;

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.

The FCCPC boss identified as Babatunde Iruekera disclosed that the man in the photo is the manager of the restaurant when asked why a Chinese man is locking up the facility.

He further revealed that the Chinese man was supervised while locking up the restaurant after which he surrendered the key.
