"It has been a disturbing occurrence to us. So far, we are investigating that issue. As it is, the said manager has been suspended pending investigations," he stated.

"We have also invited the law enforcement authorities to ensure that should there be any such incidents, then the perpetrators are brought to book," added the staff member.

The proprietor further assured that the establishment is actively working to reinstate contracts with workers who the accused manager wrongfully dismissed.

"We disassociate ourselves from any such acts and have identified a few of our staff who were recently dismissed. We have recalled them. For those who were wrongfully dismissed, we will reinstate them as the investigations go on," he added.

Senator Gloria Orwoba, who appeared in the video, noted that she intervened after the scandal went viral on social media.
