A NIGERIAN restaurant has been shut down after it was found to be serving human flesh.
Reported in the BBC, the hotel restaurant in Anambra, Nigeria came under scrutiny after locals told police there were rumours it was cooking human meat for its customers. When police raided the restaurant they discovered human heads that were still bleeding, with the blood draining into plastic bags.
A priest who ate at the restaurant was alarmed when presented with a bill of 700 Naira, or roughly $4.40 (Tens of millions of people in Nigeria subsist on less than $1 a day). “The attendant noticed my reaction and told me it was the small piece of meat I had eaten that made the bill scale that high,” he said. “I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive.”
Not only was the restaurant caught with human flesh, police also found a number of automatic weapons, grenades, and cell phones. Ten people were arrested in conjunction with the crimes.
One resident said, “Every time I went to the market, I observed strange activities going on in the hotel.
“People who were never cleanly dressed and who looked a bit strange made their way in and out of the hotel, making me very suspicious of their activities.
“I am not surprised at the shocking revelation.”
