The Anambra State Police Command in Nigeria has closed down a restaurant where human meat was being sold.
A restaurant in Anambra State has been closed down for cooking human flesh and serving it to customers. The police were said to have been tipped off by residents of the area who suspected something horrible was taking place inside the kitchen.
According to reports, when police raided the hotel restaurant, they found human heads which were still dripping with blood in plastic bags.
According to BBC, a local priest who ate at the restaurant was alarmed at the price of meals there, let alone where the meat came from. He was presented with a bill of N700.
The priest told BBC, “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. I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive.” BBC also reports that police found a terrifying arsenal of weapons which included grenades when they raided the restaurant. Ten people were arrested in connection to the crimes. One resident was quoted by BBC as saying, “I am not surprised at the shocking revelation. 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.”
