Nigerian Restaurant Selling Human Meat In Anambra Is A Hoax – Police Blasts Daily Mail, BBC, AFP

May 18, 2015 – “Nigerian Restaurant Selling Cooked Human Flesh As Meat In Anambra Story Is A Hoax” – Nigerian Police Blasts Daily Mail, BBC, AFP For Carrying False Stories

A very embarrassing story about Nigeria made its way into the media few days ago and shockingly almost all the media outlets in Nigeria carried the baseless story.

The news that started on a Swahili website made its way into international tabloids after BBC, Associated Press and Daily Mail published the false story on their websites.

The story claimed that a particular restaurant selling human meat was shut down in Enugu for cooking human flesh. The story also alleged that two human heads were seen on the premises when police stormed the building.

Well to cut the long story short, Anambra State Police Command had debunked the story.

Hear what Uche Eze, the State’s Police Spokesperson said about the hoax yesterday;

“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. I think we definitely deserve an apology because this story has already been sold out to a huge international audience who made so many unnecessary comments about Nigeria and Nigerians”.

Nigerian media outlets need to work on story verification before publishing it, the fact that it makes an headline in the UK doesn’t make the story right.

Shame on those trying to tarnish the image of Nigeria and those indirectly supporting them by publishing baseless stories.

    The story is true but it didn’t happen recently, I read it here about 2 years ago or more. It is one hotel in Onitsha I have forgotten the details

    The story is very true stop denying the truth. This typical of African countries. politics of denial. what about the evil forest that was discovered in Ibadan were humans were slaughtered like chickens by money ritualistic.
    the story made headlines and was never debunked by this newsroom. The quest for fast riches by Nigerians is the highest in the World. Reason why Nigerians appear in execution list for drugs trafficking in any country in the world.
    dealing in human body parts in Nigeria is a daily occurrence and should never be disputed by this media or unless, this media indicates its not in-touch with the reality in our beloved country.
    I rest my case

    I completely agree with what the police said about the issue, if actually what the BBC, AFP and the rest of the media is true, let them show us the video. During the Okija shrine and Ibadan shrine saga, we all saw it on the television and we believed it.
