A Nigerian restaurant has been shut down for allegedly cooking human flesh and serving it to customers after bags containing heads were found in the kitchen.
The police in Nigeria’s south-eastern Anambra region were tipped by locals who suspected that something horrific was going inside the restaurant’s kitchen, BBC Swahili reported.
When police raided the hotel restaurant, they discovered human heads, which were still dripping with blood, dumped in plastic bags in the kitchen.

A local priest who ate at the restaurant was reportedly alarmed at the price of meals there when he was presented with a bill of 700 Naira — around $3.50. That is in a country where the daily wage for tens of millions is about $1 or so. The priest said:
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 police also found an arsenal of weapons in the restaurant, including grenades. Ten people have been arrested in connection with the crimes. One resident said:
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.
