A hotel restaurant in Anambra, Nigeria has been shuttered by authorities for serving human flesh.
Residents told authorities that they suspected the eatery was cooking and selling human meat to the public. Police raided the establishment and were shocked to find fresh human heads in bags. They were in the process of being drained of blood.
Authorities confiscated the evidence, as well as weapons, grenades and cell phones from the property. Some 10 people were arrested and are being investigated for the scandal.
“Every time I went to the market, I observed strange activities going on in the hotel,” said a local, according to the BBC. “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.”
A priest says he was surprised at the high cost of food there. When he ate there and got his bill, it was three times as high as most people in Nigeria spend in a day on food. “I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive.”
The name of the restaurant has not been released.
