- This is as he found a big hook in the meal he was served at a restaurant
- His story has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians on social media
A Nigerian man has taken to social media to express gratitude to God as he narrated an unusual experience he had at a restaurant.
The man identified as Chubby Chinanu Ememka Reuben narrated on Facebook how he found a big hook in the meal he ordered at a restaurant.
According to him, he had patronized the restaurant on Sunday, April 11 at the close of church service as he had no meal the previous day because he got off work late.
He had only gone half way into the egusi mixed with bitterleaf delicacy he had ordered when he made the shocking discovery.
Upon finding the hook in his meal, he said he called the attention of the restaurant owner who apologized for the anomaly.
Sharing photos of the hook, Emeka couldn't help but get lost in thought of what would have happened if he had swallowed the item.
His post read in part:
"When I arrived, I ordered for eguisi mixed with bitterleaf soup. I began to help myself with the delicacy before me. Alas! See what I found midway. A big hook. I was completely taken aback. I was filled with shock, resentment and disbelief.
"What if I had ingested it innocently? What if it got stuck in my throat? Many questions popped up in a rapid succession.
Consequently, I quietly sought the attention of the lady that served me. In disappointment, I asked "madam, how could you guys be this negligent?"
"What a breach of duty of care! This is a new restaurant open to the general public. You ought to apply excellence in your service delivery and shun recklessness.
"I just didn't want to draw the attention of other customers to the conversation that was going on. She apologized and explained that it was stuck in the stockfish they bought from their supplier. I just paid her and left."
He went on to advise food vendors to apply extra care in the meals they prepare for their customers.
Social media users took to his comment section to appreciate God for saving him from harm.

"I wouldn't even pay her any money.thank God for your life my dear."
Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that no matter what he does, South Africa's Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni cannot steer clear from criticism that comes from his online followers - it doesn't seem like he minds though because he just keeps posting like recently he shared another snap of one of his pots.
In the pot was a pot full of what appears to be a very tomatoey mopane worm stew. He also added a snap of the food that was plated and his laptop while in the caption he also explains that it was one in the morning.
