“Nigerians were stopped from entering this supermarket in January,” the security guard said.

He said the policy was given by their employer to all the employees from January 2024.

One of the unidentified Nigerians who were denied entrance to the store said in the video:

“We are not allowed to enter the Chinese supermarket. It is not a joke. We have been trying to enter the place but we heard that most of the workers there are Nigerians. If we go in forcefully, they might lose their jobs.”

The intervention of Government was called upon by Nigerians who described the supermarket’s policy as discriminatory.

Officials of the FCCPC, stormed the premises on Monday Evening and shut the supermarket.
