FCCPC, investigates Harzoyka Restaurant over alleged Gender Based Discrimination.

Earlier today on Instagram, we told you about the horrible experience faced by Aisha Salaudeen, who shared via tweeter her experience at Harzoyka Restaurant the previous night after she was thrown out because she “had to be chaperoned by a man.” Which was indicated by Aisha in her tweet as a “new policy” by the restaurant.

However, the agency known as the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, has began investigation on the alleged Gender Discrimination being perpetrated by the said restaurant.

In a release by FCCPC, upon investigating they gathered that,

“the proprietor admits that approximately 30 days ago, it implement a new access control policy to promote social distancing in accordance with the prevailing covid19 management protocols, but denies such policy was targeted at, or to deny access to lone female patrons.”

The agency however, noted that, Harzoyka Restaurant “failed to provide appropriate sensitivity training” to “security operatives who enforce access control policies” which could have “led to the unresolved discriminatory incident.”
