A museum in London has returned its complete assortment of Benin Bronzes to the Nigerian authorities.

London’s Horniman Museum has returned its assortment of Benin Bronzes to Nigeria. They had been stolen within the late 1800s by British colonial troops after they invaded the Kingdom of Benin in what’s now Nigeria.

The artefacts ended up in museums in Europe and america.

African states have sought their return for many years.

So, how can different international locations guarantee their cultural treasures are given again and might go on show for generations to return?
