Security Guards Filmed Dancing At Chicken Republic
In a video circulation on social media, the two security guards were seen dancing at the entrance door while carrying out their job effortlessly before the customers who were enjoying their meals.
It was gathered that the owner of the restaurant who was in Canada came across the video and ordered that the two young men should be sacked so he won’t see them on camera again.
These guys were reportedly sacked for dancing by Chicken Republic. Do you agree with their decision to sack them?pic.twitter.com/kMJ3JhcHba

Chicken Republic Sacks Two ‘Dancing’ Security Guards
In another video that surfaced online, the two security officers that were sacked disclosed that the management of Chicken Republic has refused to pay them their February salary and ignored their calls when they reached out.
The two security officers, who could be seen stranded outside the building of their workplace with new replacements already doing their job, said they worked work more than a month before their dismissal, but their ex-employer refused to pay their salary.

Chicken republic sacking those security guys for dancing simply shows that it’s a crime to be happy in Nigeria. What crimes was committed by dancing? Pilots, doctors, chefs etc., dance at work. Even world leaders who joined TikTok has been recorded dancing. What’s the big deal?

A typical Nigerian gets mad when he sees another person happy. Those two boys who were captured dancing while happily doing their security work at Chicken Republic have been sacked. When I saw the video I wanted to comment that their mood showed that they were being treated

Army officers abroad self do tiktok.
But Nigerians are defending Chicken republic, Saying that firing those “door openers” is justified because it’s a corporate environment.

Chicken Republic has every right to sack the security guards who were dancing during working hours; The brand has a reputation to maintain. Y'all calling out Chicken Rep. are being sentimental cos those guards acted unprofessional, if such act was tolerated, others will emulate.

Uploading this on their social media would have blown up chicken republic socials, it's such good publicity & shows that they are happy at their workplace even at the worst possible time in the Country.
Anyway the boys got the actual PR they deserve

The dancing traffic cop who controls traffic in Abuja was rewarded for his unique & funny dance steps while doing his job under scorching sun! He didn't fail anyone. Chicken Republic had 2 security guys who danced happily while doing their job at their duty post but got fired.

A lot of emotions going into this Chicken Republic gist. It’s okay to say the truth. Sacking them might be harsh but they are security personnels, dancing on duty isn’t part of the job description.

Omo chicken republic team could have capitalized on this content or just turn this thing around for their brand instead of sacking them. E.g This is how happy you get once you place an order from chicken republic🤷 https://t.co/DSL7Izufim
