The United Kingdom (UK) has signaled its intention to return to Nigeria artefacts that were looted in the 19th Century.
The artefacts to be returned are those looted from the then Kingdom of Benin.
Ngeria’s National Commission for Museums and Monuments has welcomed the decision for the artefacts to be returned.
The Commission’s Legal Advisor, Babatunde Adebiyi, in an interview with the BBC monitored by African Entertainment, expressed the hope that some of the 72 objects would be on display in Nigeria later in 2022.
The looted artefacts brass plaques, known as Benin bronzes, and a key to the king’s palace.
Horniman Museum in London noted on Sunday that it was both moral and appropriate to give the items back.
