NIGERIA (INTELLIHUB) — Last week a hotel in Nigeria was raided after local residents reported that the restaurant inside was selling human meat in their burgers. Police found severed human heads that were stored at the restaurant, and arrested 11 people in connection to the investigation.
“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 thehotel. So, I was not surprised when the police made this discovery in the early hours of yesterday,” a vegetable seller in the area said.
A Pastor who was among the people who tipped off the police on Thursday said: “I went to thehotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700 (4$), I was surprised. So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price.”
While incidents of cannibalism have been discovered in Nigeria in rare cases, the general population is horrified by this practice.
