FAAN Shuts KFC Outlet For Denying Ex-Ogun Gov’s Son Entry Over His Disability

The management of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has ordered the closure of the KFC outlet at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos with effect from Thursday, March 28, 2024.

FAAN said the decision was 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 on the basis of the disabilityof that person.”

The development followed a social media report by a Passenger with Reduced Mobility (PRM), Debola Daniel, alleging discriminatory treatment he received at the KFC outlet located at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

A statement signed by the Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, FAAN, Mrs Obiageli Orah, said the MD/CE of FAAN, Mrs Olubunmi Kuku, intervened swiftly by deploying a management team comprising the Director, Public Affairs and Consumer Protection, Mrs Obiageli Orah, the Regional Manager South West, Mr Sunday Ayodele, Ag. General Manager Public Affairs, Mrs Ijeoma Nwosu-Igbo and the International Terminal Manager, Mr Kerri, to investigate the allegation against KFC.

“It is based on the findings of the team that FAAN has shut down the KFC facility at the MMA, where the incident occurred.
