A Nigerian lady has called out an Abuja hotel identified as CasaLinda hotel for discriminating against her Italian husband due to the high transmission level of the Novel Coronavirus in his country.
According to the lady, she and her husband made a 4 nights reservation in CasaLinda hotel Abuja but it was canceled because the husband is an Italian even after they tried to prove they have not been in Italy in the last 6 months.
Mitchelle Iannone recounts the incident on her social media page, she wrote;
“Last week hubby and I made a hotel reservation for 4 nights at CasaLinda hotel Abuja, through bookings. Everything was paid for and finalized. Only for us to receive a shocking message and call, whilst preparing to go there this afternoon. saying our reservation has been canceled because my husband is Italian. I told them the last time we went to Italy was 6months ago. These people refused and said they can’t let us into their premises because the are scared of us bring the corona virus. Then to even make matters worst, they only offered to pay 70% of the full payment we made, saying 30% is nonrefundable. We demand a full refund and apology hotel casalinda. #saynotodiscrimination”
