Discrimination: Chinese Supermarket Sealed by Nigerian Consumer Protection Officials

Must read

ABUJA, Nigeria — A Chinese supermarket located within the China General Chamber of Commerce in Abuja was sealed by officials from the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, on Monday, April 22, 2024, following reports of a policy that restricted entry exclusively to Chinese nationals and barred Nigerians.

The action by the FCCPC came after a surge of public outrage that erupted on Sunday when details of the supermarket’s discriminatory policy came to light.

Nigerian citizens voiced their concerns, prompting a swift response from the consumer protection agency.

Upon their arrival at the premises on Monday, FCCPC officials interviewed Nigerian employees and subsequently sealed the establishment.

Shaibu Sanusi, the facility manager, confirmed the restrictive practice, noting that “Nigerians from outside the complex do not shop here, but Nigerians within can access it.”

As the supermarket remains closed, there is an ongoing investigation into the matter.

The consumer protection agency has expressed concerns that some individuals might be hiding inside the supermarket to avoid direct confrontation with the authorities.
