Restaurant In Nigeria Shut Down For Serving Roasted Human Heads

meatCan you truly call yourself an adventurous international foodie tourist if you haven’t dined at this establishment? Via the International Business Times:

A restaurant in the Nigerian state of Anambra has been shut down after the authorities reportedly found it has been selling dishes made of human meat.

The police recovered at least two fresh human heads when they arrested 11 people from the restaurant including the owner, six women and four men, following a tip-off. The blood-soaked heads were found wrapped in cellophane sheets.

“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 characters’ always come into the hotel,” a local resident told the Osun Defender.

Reports of cannibalism sometimes emerge in Nigeria, but this is the first time a restaurant has been booked for selling human meat dishes.
