No Restaurant Serves Human Meat in Anambra"---Gov. Obiano Reacts to BBC Human Flesh Saga
Following the reports making round that the Anambra State Police Command shutdown an undisclosed restaurant for serving human meat to customers, the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano has berated the story, describing it as false information meant to smear the good image of the state.

Obiano reacted through a statement issued yesterday by the state’s newly appointed Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr (Mrs) Mary Nwogu.
The statement read in part thus: "The attention of the Anambra State Government has been drawn to a false and malicious report circulating on social media over the purported closure by the Nigeria Police of a restaurant selling human meat in Anambra state. 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.
"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.
"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.
"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. 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...", Obiano concluded.
