The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has shut down a Chinese-owned Supermarket in the Jabi area of Abuja as part of measures to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
The FCCPC said in a series of tweets that it had confiscated some frozen food items illegally imported from China.
The agency said in a series of tweets, “The FCCPC inspected a upermarket (name withheld) i, on credible reports that it discriminated and had a concealed area for Asian nationals. The allegation was confirmed. Seafood and animal products imported illegally from China were discovered.
“The store was closed for cautionary reasons considering the Coronavirus. Products with expired and irregular shelf life were also discovered at Panda. Regulatory activities to remove all such products from the supermarket continue.”
The Federal Government had earlier in the week assured Nigerians of its readiness to strengthen surveillance at five international airports in the country to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
