Nigerian restaurant allegedly 'served human flesh to customers'

Nigerian restaurant served human flesh to customers 
A viral story have emerged yesterday and it was reported on Yahoo News, about a Nigerian restaurant in Anambra State that sells human flesh as meat to customers. The restaurant have been shut down, and the story could be hoax according to the report.

When police raided the restaurant they discovered human heads that were still bleeding.

According to the story, a priest who ate at the restaurant was presented with a bill of 700 Naira, or around $4.40, which is a considerable amount of money with millions survive on less than a $1 a day.

"The attendant noticed my reaction and told me it was the small piece of meat I had eaten that made the bill scale that high," he told the BBC.

He was shocked to learn the meat he was served was human flesh.

"I did not know I had been served with human meat, and that it was that expensive," he said.

It was also reported that police seized a number of automatic weapons, grenades and cell phones, while 10 people were arrested.

The story appears to have originated in a Nigerian tabloid, Osun Defender, in September 2013. The original article features the same quotes and similar details to those circulated in the most recent version.

It is not the first time the world has been shocked by stories of commercial cannibalism that proved to be false.
