University of Cambridge Returns Stolen Benin Fowl...

A stolen Benin artifact, the Okhokho has been returned to the Benin Kingdom in Edo State, Nigeria by the University of Cambridge, UK. 







It was stolen by British troops during the 1897 invasion of the Benin Empire. "Okhokho" means fowl in Edo (Benin) language.

    1. We're willingly throwing away our heritage, culture, ethics and morals we once had as Africans, and embracing the lifestyle of the western world like it's going out of fashion, the least of our problems are these returned artifacts and antiques, we need to bring back our dignity and raise our moral standards back to where it was, that will impact our younger generations, way more than a carved okuko.

    1. You didnt know the value.
      When last did you go to a museum to look at the antiques and artifacts there?

    2. 10.41 so how does that give them the right to STEAL it? Nothing justifies looting of a country's cultural heritage.

    3. So because they know the value gives them the right to steal it abi no wonder your politicians keep robbing you blind cos you don’t know what to do with your money

    4. Abuse is inevitable when the value of a thing is not known.

  14. Even the ridiculous comments some are asking here shows you the kind of mindset that led to these artifacts being plundered in the first place .

    2. Sold by who?The Oba of Benin and Edo state governor re preparing a place for such treasures already.you can't steal such historic artifacts and sell them so easily like that. The British took them as spoils of war, that's why they had them in the first place.
