She took to Twitter in Sunday night, November 8 to vent and this has sparked reactions online.
“I got kicked out of Harzoyka restaurant in GRA Ikeja today because according to them, they have a new policy – no women allowed. This is a restaurant I’ve visited multiple times in the past few years.
“When I pressed about why I was been hushed out, I was told that to eat in there I had to be chaperoned by a man. I was too stunned to comment, I cannot have a meal because I’m a woman? @MsAdeola and I had to eat somewhere else.
“It’s bad enough that my existence as a woman in the world is threatened everyday. Now I have to add eating a meal at a restaurant with a friend to the list. Insane”
As of the time of filing this report, the management of Harzoyka restaurant is yet to respond to Aisha’s allegations.
