Abuja Chinese supermarket underfire for allegedly denying Nigerians entry


An Abuja-based Chinese supermarket has come under fire for denying Nigerians entry into the facility.

The supermarket situated at the China General Chamber of Commerce, along Umaru Musa Yar’Adua Road in the Federal Capital Territory, is acclaimed as a destination for Chinese cuisine and beverages.

In a video shared by X-daily on X ( formerly Twitter), a man shared his experience visiting the alleged restaurant.

The unnamed man said, “Wonders shall never end. There is a supermarket I saw online that is a Chinese supermarket. They have Chinese food, ramen, and other things. I wanted to go there and check it out, but I was denied entry. The security officers at the gate said the supermarket was strictly for Chinese people, and no Nigerian was allowed to go inside or buy anything. Is that possible in China?

“This supermarket is in Abuja, and a Nigerian cannot enter. This is a joke. So that means a Chinese guy has more rights than you here in Nigeria. Chinese guys are allowed to visit anywhere in the country. The thing shocked me oo. I am returning to our local supermarket because they said I cannot enter.”

Such a thing can never happened in China.”
