The report circulating that a restaurant in Awka, the Anambra State capital, which was serving cooked human flesh to unsuspecting members of the public as part of its menu has been described as not only false, but embarrassing by the state Police Command.
According to the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, which carried the report, “Residents told police of rumours that the restaurant was cooking human meat for customers.
“Police then raided the restaurant, where they discovered fresh human heads that were still bleeding. The blood was in the process of being drained into a plastic bag”.
But in a telephone interview on Sunday, the Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, Uche Eze, said, “There was nothing like that. I advise you to ignore that report. It’s not true and it did not happen. We don’t have such record. It’s embarrassing”.
