Chicken Republic denies sacking security guards dancing in viral video


Chicken Republic, the Nigerian fast-food franchise, has finally reacted to claims that it sacked two security guards seen dancing in a viral video.

A video clip of the two men vibing to ‘Dorime’, the popular song, while on duty at a branch of the company had earlier surfaced online.

The footage had triggered fiery arguments on social media, with Nigerian users expressing mixed reactions.

There were also rumours that the pair had been fired by the company, further intensifying the dust trailing the video clip.

But in a statement via its Instagram page today, the company said they were not sacked as claimed. The firm also said it “encourages fun at work.”
