This comes following the discrimination against Adebola Daniel, a son of former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel.

The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has now shut down the Kentucky Fried Chicken, KFC, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos.

On March 27, Adebola Daniel posted on his official X page about his experience at KFC, MMIA branch.

According to Daniel, the restaurant had stopped him and his family from entering, stating that ‘no wheelchairs were allowed’.

“Just as we were about to sit, the lady at the till, who was the manager, called out loudly, ‘No Wheelchairs Allowed’.

“She refused to listen to reason and stood her ground that at KFC, Nigeria Murtala Muhammed Airport branch, wheelchairs and wheelchair users of all shapes and sizes were not permitted on the premises and we should leave immediately.

“I have never been the type of person to make a fuss or complain about my disability.”

Reacting to the development, the Director of Public Affairs and Consumer Protection at FAAN, Obiageli Orah, said the authority had investigated the matter and made their decision.

Orah added that the shutdown will take effect from March 28.

The statement reads: “In line with Lagos State law on people with special needs, Part C, section 55 of General Provisions on Discrimination, which states that, ‘A person shall not deprive another person of access to any place, vehicle or facility that members of the public are entitled to enter or use based on the disability of that person.

“The management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, has closed the KFC facility at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos from March 28, 2024.

“This is as a result of a social media report by a Passenger with Reduced Mobility, PRM, alleging discriminatory treatment he received at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.”
