No human meat restaurant in Akwa, says Anambra Govt

21 May 2015, 18:12

Awka - The Anambra Government said it had investigated reports that human meat was found in a restaurant in Awka and found same to be false, thereby urging the public to ignore the story.

This is conveyed in a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mrs Mary Nwogu in Awka on Thursday.
It described the reports circulating mostly in social media over the closure of the said restaurant selling human flesh in the state by the Nigeria Police as false and malicious.

It said the report was part of a wider smear campaign by anti-democratic forces and enemies of progress attempting to sabotage the infrastructural and social development in the state.

"The government, having investigated the story and found same to be false, hereby urges the public to ignore the said story.

"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 the state”, the commissioner said.

It said the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Uche Ezeh, had debunked the story.

The commissioner also said that the false report published by a national daily had been retracted and the organisation apologised having found it to be untrue.
