Discrimination: FCCPC quizzes owners of Chinese Supermarket

FCCPC seals Abuja Chinese supermarket over discrimination against Nigerians

Operatives of the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) have grilled owners of a Chinese supermarket in Abuja over alleged discriminatory practices against Nigerians.

FCCPC operatives also conducted an inspection of the facility, even as investigation continues.

In a post on X, the agency wrote, “Owners of the Abuja Chinese Supermarket facing allegations of discriminatory practices responded to our summons today to answer questions regarding the allegations. FCCPC operatives have conducted an inspection of the facility.”

Recall the FCCPC had shut the Chinese supermarket on Monday over alleged discrimination against Nigerians.

The Commission subsequently summoned the owners the supermarket for allegedly discriminating against Nigerians by restricting their entry.

The supermarket, located at the China General Chamber of Commerce along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Road in the Federal Capital Territory, was said to exclusively permits individuals of Chinese origin to enter.

A viral video posted had showed an unidentified Abuja resident expressing discontent over the discriminatory policy.
