PDP supporters slam Chicken Republic – Online supporters of the People’s Democratic Party, have attacked fast-food chain Chicken Republic over an advert mocking party chief Olisa Metuh.
In the advert, the company delivers food to a jailed Metuh, asking him to eat their food instead of his words, a jibe at him tearing up his statement.
Why eat your words when you can eat our meals? pic.twitter.com/lgW0sMn3Rn

The ad by @ChickenRepublic was done in extreme bad faith and sought to demonise Metuh over a matter awaiting determination in court.
