Cannibal Restaurant with Roasted Human Heads on Menu Shut Down

kitchen

Police arrested 11 people and closed a restaurant [in Anambra, Nigeria] after two human heads wrapped in cellophane were discovered at a hotel restaurant that had been serving human flesh.

Human flesh was apparently being sold as an expensive treat at the restaurant, with authorities saying that roasted human head was even on the 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 said.

“So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price.”

As an interesting follow-up, attempts to track this back to its origin have suspiciously led directly to a paper owned by a rival ethnic group of the purported restraunteers, leading to the possibility that the story may be an underhanded piece of propaganda.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
