Anambra Restaurant Shut Down For Serving Human Flesh

Anambra Restaurant Shut Down For Serving Human Flesh

Anambra state police and health authorities closed down a hotel in the state capital Awka after an inspection revealed that it was cooking and serving its customers human flesh.

Nigerian Watch reports that the hotel charged heavily for its delicacies and local people were always ready to pay thinking they were getting elite service.

However, neighbours got suspicious of the facility and decided to inform the local police.

The officers who inspected the hotel restaurant made a shocking discovery - human heads that were still dripping with blood in plastic bags.

Continuing the raid, police also found other human remains and a terrifying arsenal of weapons

A local priest, who used to eat at the restaurant, said he was alarmed at the price meals were being sold at the restaurant.

"I was presented with a bill of N700 and 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,” he said.

“I am not surprised at the shocking revelation as 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,” said one of the local residents.

Meanwhile, reports say 10 people have been arrested by the police in connection to the crimes.
