BBC apologises over false ‘human meat’ story about Anambra restaurant

The British Broadcasting Cooperation has issued its apology for publishing a false story about a restaurant in Anambra State, Nigeria, where human flesh is served as meat.
The BBC had in the report, claimed that some residents of Anambra informed police about rumours that the restaurant was cooking human meat for customers.
The report had also stated that when police raided the restaurant, fresh human heads, still bleeding were found there, adding that the blood found there were in the process of being drained into a plastic bag.
Recognising the inaccuracy of the report, the BBC has published an apology, saying the story was false and inappropriate.

“The story about the Nigerian restaurant which we published here frame a mistake and we apologise. It was incorrect and BBC published without the proper checks. We have removed the story and have launched an urgent investigation into how this happened,” BBC said.
