The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) yesterday summoned Cindy Liu Bei, a Chinese running an Abuja supermarket, over a viral video allegedly restricting Nigerians’ access to the facility. The agency was forced to paste the summons on the gate leading into the building housing the supermarket after hours of trying to access the supermarket.

The team led by the Director of Surveillance and Investigation Boladale Adeyinka said Bei was given two days to report or risk further sanctions. Adeyinka said:
“The mission of the commission is in response to the video that went viral when consumers, particularly Nigerian consumers, were allegedly being discriminated against and prevented from accessing a supermarket located in Abuja.

“The essence of the surveillance and investigations that we conducted today is to verify the allegations and the contents of that viral video. “On arrival, we noticed that the supermarket was sealed and padlocked externally. “Inquiries have shown that yes, as of this morning, the supermarket was open and people were here. “CCTV footages also show that at about 8.29am two vehicles left the premises allegedly containing the owner of the supermarket, whom we have been able to identify by name and we have her contact details.

“The summons of course since she’s not around and the place is locked, is to serve notice on her to appear on Wednesday by 11 am. “There are other regulatory tools to be deployed if she fails to attend to the summons. The summons means that on entry into this premises to gain access into it, they will be able to sight this.”
