Ayorinde: No Racist Restaurant In Lagos

Lagos state commissioner for tourism, arts and culture Steve Ayorinde has debunked the ongoing social media speculation of an alleged racist Chinese restaurant in Ikeja area of Lagos. According to the speculation, a Chinese restaurant Shishi on Emina crescent in Ikeja allegedly said it’s not opened for ‘Nigerians’
However, in a swift reaction, the state ministry of tourism set up a fact finding team to verify the social media claim, which came back to be untrue.

According to the commissioner “No racist restaurant in Lagos 

Following the social media posts on Monday about the allegation that a certain Chinese restaurant in Ikeja is engaged in racial discrimination against potential Nigerian customers, our officers were sent to investigate the veracity of the claim. The two officers who went there on Monday did so incognito and found the allegations to be false. The officers were served without any questions or discrimination. They also took photographs without being noticed. Our officers also observed that the restaurant had a number of Nigerians working inside there and did similarly observe that peppersoup, a Nigerian delicacy is also on the menu.
More, importantly, the restaurant has been registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism Arts and Culture since 2016 as required by law.
As the regulators of eateries, restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality facilities in Lagos State, the Ministry of Tourism Arts and Tourism will further investigate this claim, beyond what our findings on Monday revealed and will be vigilant about the activities of this restaurant and its subsidiary”
