Restaurant shut down after ‘serving human flesh’

While most good restaurants offer the standard fare: prime steaks, chicken, an array of seafood and perhaps thick-cut pork chops, some offer more exotic options: bison, elk, calamari or pheasant under glass.

However, according to the BBC, one restaurant in Nigeria was recently shut down for serving a menu item even more “exotic”: human flesh.

As reported by Metro:

According to BBC News Swahili, visitors to the hotel restaurant in Anambra, Nigeria, notified police that there were rumours that human meat was being given to customers.

The BBC reports that when police raided the restaurant, they found to their horror that fresh human heads – still bleeding – were being stored in the back and that some human flesh was being served.

One local resident told the BBC:

“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.”

One customer who recently dined at the fine establishment thought something was suspicious when his bill was so high:

“A priest who had recently eaten at the restaurant reportedly told authorities that he had been presented with a bill of 700 Naira – around £2.20 – which is a large amount of money in a country where millions survive on less than 60p 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.

I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive.

The BBC reported that 10 people have been arrested.
