A new mystery meat at a hotel restaurant in Anambra, Nigeria, was taken off the menu this week and the restaurant has been shut down by police. The mystery meat in question? Oh you know, just human flesh.
Police raided the restaurant after receiving a tip about possible cannibalistic activities taking place there.
(This is NOT a picture of a dish featuring human meat.)
When police arrived, they found two severed human heads wrapped in cellophane in the restaurant”s kitchen. Police also recovered two AK-47 rifles, ammunition, and several cell phones.
After the raid, a local pastor admitted he had his suspicions about the restaurant.
“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,” he said. “So I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such expensive price.”
Authorities said that human meat was allegedly on the restaurant”s menu as an expensive indulgence for wealthy customers. They say that one menu item was even roasted human head.

Authorities have shut down the restaurant and arrested all of those involved. Hopefully they can catch the rest of the network of people who were supplying the human meat. This just makes me fear for humanity.
