Cannibalism has always existed, ever since human beings came into existence on this planet. The stories of Japanese soldiers eating their enemies, during the second world war (1939-1945) have been heard by many of us.
As it should be, cannibalism has been declared as illegal in most of the countries, governed by civil laws. Most of us would consider it as beastly behaviour.
In a shocking development in Nigeria, Nigeria restaurant has been permanently shut down after human heads were found in the fridge. Police have detained 11 people after two human heads ‘wrapped in cellophane’ were found at a hotel restaurant that had been serving human flesh.
A small clue helped police to the macabre discovery in Anambra, Nigeria, with 11 people being detained and AK-47 guns and other weapons being seized.
It has been learnt that human flesh was apparently being sold as an expensive treat at the Nigerian restaurant, with authorities adding that roasted human head was even on the food menu.
“I went to the hotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700, I was surprised,” a pastor who had visited the eatery added.
“So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such an expensive price.
“What is this country turning into? Can you imagine people selling human flesh as meat,” he added. “Seriously I’m beginning to fear people in this part of the world.”
Another local who knows about these things told Osun Defender newspaper that he has observed some strange activities in and out of the restaurant. He stressed on the fact that some dirty people always find time to turn up here. He was not so surprised when the cops detained the people with the help of a tip-off.
“I always noticed funny movements in and out of the hotel; dirty people with dirty characters always come into the hotel.
“So, I was not surprised when the police made this discovery in the early hours.”
The tabloid further reported that two army caps, 40 rounds of live ammunition and ‘so many cell phones’ were also discovered by the authorities.
