A man took to Twitter to accuse an airline of discriminating against people living with disabilities after he was prevented from boarding his flight because he uses a wheelchair.
Chike Okogwu said he was told by the airline at the Abuja airport that a “new policy” forbids them from carrying people with wheelchair.
He refused to be intimidated and this turned physical.
Sharing a photo of his bleeding hand and blood on his boarding pass, he wrote: “It’s turning bloody here in Abuja Airport. If we die, we die. I say no to discrimination of persons with Disabilities in Nig.”
He later disclosed that persons living with disabilities in Nigeria are mobilizing to all airports across the country to shut down the airline.
