In February of 1897, Great Britain invaded the kingdom of Benin, exiling its king, burned down the kingdom’s capital, and stole thousands of its artefacts, with some of these stolen artefacts being sold to other countries. One such country is Germany, which currently posses over 400 pieces of Benin Bronzes, making it the second-largest collection in the world.

On this episode of #TheInterview​, we speak with Amb. Yusuf Tuggar, Nigeria’s high commissioner to Germany, on the return of stolen Benin bronze artefacts and the significance of the Benin bronzes to Nigeria’s arts and culture.

This episode of The Interview originally on the 31st of March, 2021.
