FOOD POISONING: DO NOT EAT AT MEGA CHICKEN Lekki/Ajah @megachickenofficial
I’m recommending my fans NEVER to eat there. There is a health coverup and you will be prone to #COVID19. I spotted a cook in the buffet line up without a mask talking and sniffling with droplets going into the food. The cashiers were trying to hide the management and the management were trying to hide their names. There is always a corporate office. Watch my video coming up. I am cracking down on restaurants with unsafe health practices. My first time there was last week. I also ate an egg fried rice that was sour. The egg was either contaminated or the rice stayed out too long. NAFDAC should shut that branch down and I’m filing a complaint. I’m a star Google reviewer and want to know your experience there.

The spices that @megachicken_NG use in their food is reportedly Ajinomoto which is a combination of MSG and sugarcane. Many are complaining about the level of sweeteners in the food. No wonder Nigerians have high levels of diabetes. @NafdacAgency must look into this #Kemitalks

Mega Chicken Defames an investigative Journalist trying to solve a personal consumer issue. I’m going on an all out SOCIAL MEDIA war with the company. This is why Nigerians are suffering and smiling, melanoma has increased and so is diabetes. An employee put thousands in danger they refused to address it. Instead they called me mischievous, yellow Journalist and deliberate liar.
