Three farmers from Nasoyiri in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Savannah Region have been arrested by the Sawla police for eating suspected human meat.
The three are reported to have cooked the meat they thought was that of a chimpanzee, which was burnt by bushfires on their farm.
A fourth person, who was with them, examined the meat and suspected it was human meat.
Investigations by the police are still underway.
Assembly member for the area, Bagbol Eridon Eric, confirmed the incident to Citi News and said the farmers only realised that the meat was human meat after they had consumed part of it.
