The Lagos State government, on Tuesday, cleared the Chinese restaurant accused by some Nigerians of racism.

The Lagos State Government’s position made known via a Press statement issued by the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Steve Ayorinde, said that findings by its officers sent to “investigate the veracity of the claim” showed that the allegations were false.

“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 pepper soup, 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.”

The ministry, which regulates eateries, restaurants, hotels and other hospitality facilities in Lagos, promised to conduct further investigations.
