In one Nigerian restaurant, cops have discovered that it was humans on the menu.

The grim discovery was made after police officers in Nigeria found two human heads wrapped in cellophane at a hotel restaurant. They had raided the hotel in Anambra in southeastern Nigeria after receiving a tip-off.

The hotel owner and 10 others have been arrested, reported the Osun Defender.

“I went to the hotel early this year, after eating, I was told that a lump of meat was being sold at N700 ($4),” one local pastor, who was one of those who tipped off police, told the Osun Defender website. “I was surprised. So, I did not know it was human meat that I ate at such an expensive price.”
