Nigeria shuts Chinese supermarket due to coronavirus

A supermarket operated by Chinese nationals has been shut down in Nigeria’s capital city Abuja.

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission closed Panda Supermarket because of its alleged discriminatory practices against non-Asians and as a cautionary step following the outbreak of coronavirus in China.

FCCPC said it confirmed the allegations against supermarket located in Jabi area of Abuja.

Apart from confirming the allegations, FCCPC said “seafood and animals imported illegally from China” were discovered.

“Products with expired and irregular shelf life were also discovered,” FCCPC said on Wednesday.

“Regulatory activities to remove all offensive products from the Supermarket continues.”

FCCPC discovered some products on sale with expiry dates set for 2019, 2073 and 2089.
