Lagos - The Anambra State Government has dismissed reports the Nigeria Police had closed a local restaurant selling human flesh.
The report has been making rounds in social media.
Mary Imelda Nwogu, Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, debunked such reports as false and malicious.
“The government of Anambra State having investigated the story and found same to be false hereby urges Ndi Anambra and friends of the state to ignore the said story as it is part of a wider smear campaign by anti-democratic forces and enemies of progress who have been attempting to sabotage the fast paced visible infrastructural and social development going on in the state,” she said.

“These individuals who go by various aliases on social media and on some other media platforms have continued to feed unsuspecting members of the public with lies about Anambra State, in the hope that they will distract the present administration.”
Nwogu said it was instructive that the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, Anambra State Command, Uche Ezeh, had in an earlier statement to the media, debunked the alleged false story.
“Anambra State, the light of the nation is open for business and is now the destination of choice in Nigeria for investors looking for a government friendly investment climate, security, large market, attractive return on investment, skilled manpower and supporting infrastructure.”
