Racist Chinese Restaurant Sealed In Victoria Island For Refusing To Cater To Nigerian Customers
The Nigerian government on Saturday sealed Haufei Restaurant & Mall located in highbrow Victoria Island, Lagos for what many citizens have called racism.
The owners had been reported to authorities for denying Nigerians their services.
The Federal Competition & Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), in a Twitter post, said the staff of the restaurant confirmed that they do not sell to Nigerians as it was a rule laid down by the Eatery's management.
A tweet by the government agency reads: “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.”
Many Nigerians are complimenting the Federal Competition & Consumer Protection Commission Response but are also appealing for a stern and permanent punishment to be handed out.
