Human flesh restaurant: Anambra State Govt says it’s false, malicious

The Anambra State Government has described as false and malicious, reports making a round on the Internet over the purported closure by the Nigerian Police of a restaurant selling human flesh in Anambra State, reports ITRealms.
The newly sworn-in Commissioner for Information, Culture & Tourism, Dr. Mrs Mary Imelda Nwogu, told ITRealms that this story, as reprehensible and false as it is, was also published by a national daily which has since retracted it and apologised, having found it to be untrue.

Nwogu in a press statement made available to ITRealms 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.
According to her, the 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.
“It is 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 false story,” she said.
Nwogu also said that Anambra State known as the light of the nation is open for business and is becoming 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.
