Members of a cult in Papua, New Guinea have been arrested after authorities discovered their ‘Cannibal Cult’. The cult has been accused of murdering seven witch doctors in the country’s jungle interior.
Madang Police Commander Anthony Wagambie confirmed a report according to the Associated Press. The report stated the cult members reportedly ate their victims’ brains raw and made soup from their penises.
Despite the criminal charges they face, “they don’t think they’ve done anything wrong; they admit what they’ve done openly,” Police Commander Anthony Wagambie, of the Madang province, told the Associated Press.
Cannibalism has long been practiced in Papua, New Guinea and the indigenous people are world known for their head shrinking and head hunting, that was first discovered by European settlers.
Today Papua, New Guinea is one of the few places left on earth where tribes of indigenous people live as they have in the jungle’s for many years.
Cannibalism was part of a wartime Papua, New Guinea tradition that victorious tribes would practice. They consider human flesh to be “long pig” and was still practiced in isolated pockets of Papua, New Guinea while the country was under Australian colonial rule.
Four of the seven victims were murdered last week, Wagambie said, adding that no remains had been recovered.
“They’re probably all eaten up,” he said.
