African dictator accused of eating his enemies’ testicles and brains
He’s not well-known, but the president of Equatorial Guinea is alleged to have a brutal regime.
Theodoro Obiang Nguema, 74, has ruled over the country since 1979.
Known as “torturer-in-chief”, his rise to power saw him overthrow his uncle – Francisco Macias N’Guema – taking revenge after the ruler had his family murdered.
Since taking power, those who politically opposed him have been subjected to torture and oppression.
However many claim his depravity goes even deeper.
It is alleged that Nguema is a cannibal.
Those who make the claims say that he believes by eating his political opponents, his sexual prowess is boosted…
Nguema is also said to have skinned opponents alive and has eaten their brains.
But as he remained in power for so long, he is said to increasingly believe himself to have God-like powers.
