Police reportedly closed down a hotel restaurant in Nigeria after it was found to be selling human flesh. Eleven people, including the hotel owner, were arrested.
Authorities were able to recover at least two human heads when they raided the Anambra, Nigeria restaurant after receiving a tip from area residents on Thursday morning.
The fresh heads were found wrapped in cellophane sheets, and police said roasted human head was even on the menu, according to The Mirror.
Weapons, including two guns and dozens of rounds of ammunition, were also discovered.
“We always saw weird people coming and going,” one local resident said.
“Each time I came to market, because the hotel is very close to the market, I always noticed funny movements in and out of the hotel; dirty people with dirty characters always come into the hotel,” a vegetable seller in the area told the Osum Defender. “So, I was not surprised when the police made this discovery.”
A pastor, who was surprised to learn he had been served human flesh, complained to the police.
“The workers told me that I ate human flesh,” he said. “I was shocked.”
The pastor also mentioned the bill for his human flesh meal was very expensive. Obviously that’s the worst part of all this — the price tag associated with human meat.
