A restaurant in Nigeria has reportedly been closed down after authorities discovered staff were cooking human flesh and serving it to customers.
The police were tipped off by concerned locals and, when they raided the kitchen, they found human heads which were still dripping with blood in plastic bags!
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.
The police also found an arsenal of weapons in the restaurant, located in the south-eastern province of Anambra, including grenades and AK-47 rifles. Ten people were arrested in connection to the crimes.
Bizarrely, a local priest who ate at the hotel seemed more alarmed by the price of the meals there than the fact he might have been eating human flesh.
He was presented with a bill of 700 Naira (around £2.20) when the daily wage for millions of Nigerians is only around 60p.
Speaking to BBC Swahili, 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.Advertisement
It seems these guys took the plots of Sweeney Todd and Silence of the Lambs a little too literally!
