Germany returns 7,000 Benin artefacts to Nigeria

No fewer than 7,000 artefacts plundered from the Benin Kingdom are expected to be repatriated by Germany to Nigeria not later than October, Nigeria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says.

The ministry’s permanent secretary Gabriel Aduda disclosed this at the inaugural Nigerian Cultural Show exhibiting Nigeria’s diverse cultural heritage, sites, and traditional festivals held at the Cultural Centre, Nigeria House, New York.

The official said the ministry had been at the forefront alongside relevant ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) to repatriate the artefacts.

“We are working with relevant MDAs, we have had several high-level meetings with the Republic of Germany, and we are at a stage where thousands of artworks are to be returned to Nigeria.

“There are over 7,000 different pieces of artefacts that the Republic of Germany wants to give back to Nigeria,’’ he said.
