Five People Die after Reportedly Eating Dog Meat at Popular Rivers State Inn




Five people are said to have died in the Woji, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State after reportedly eating dog meat served at a popular inn.

According to Vanguard, an individual named Friday Dickson a.k.a Etiaba, was the one who cooked the dog meat.

The report further states:

Vanguard gathered that Etiaba had been in the area for a long time, running an inn where he cooks only dog meat in Mini-Woji Road at Woji Town.

Mr Brain Ogbondah, a member of the community, revealed that five people who ate the dog meat prepared by Etiaba, among others, had been confirmed dead some hours after eating the dog meat.

He said the situation has mounted tension in the community, resulting in an emergency meeting by the council of chiefs and elders, with a view to locating other members of the community who also ate the dog meat.

He said the suspect fled the community after the five people were confirmed dead.

      Oh Bruno Fierce dog meat is actually the deal. Not that I’m a eater on that level but I can tell you about the goodness of it…for some people it’s culture. Of course, you wouldn’t know it’s a particular type of dog that’s there, all washed up nice and clean!

    Barbaric stupid pple, I had wantd to say maybe it is poverty? But then these people actually PAY to eat dog meat, like they would regular beef.
    Anyway who am I to point a finger cuz I’m an unrepentant beef lover so I guess that makes me somewhat a barbarian. Cow or Dog, they all have to go thru the same torture and death to eventually be eaten. Sigh

    Don’t know why but I feel ‘sorrier’ for a dog that has to go through that. May the souls of the dear departed thru the mercy of God rest in peace.
