AreaFada2:

A new standard museum is being built to house returned artworks as more are expected to follow. Other countries will now be effing hypocrites to retain their own share of loot.

By the time the contract to build the museum is hyperinflated, it will be another drain. Let's hope the drama of receiving the artefacts will not outweigh the truth behind what they will be doing with them.

It has been estimated that more than 90% of Artefacts of African Origins are not in African Continents according to various researches. These artefacts left Africa in different forms during the colonial period.

We have a bad culture of shaping and remembering our public memory. This stature will NOT be appreciated in Nigeria, we don't know what to do wih it.

Because you don't have money to build a land that your family own
The people that have money should take the land from you
Amen

They are all of a sudden quickly returning African artifacts because the ancestors are returning and woe to anyone that is holding the spiritual powers of their children. They are not returning it out of the goodness of their heart but because they know what time we are living in.

It will disappear from any Nigerian museum in which it is kept then it will be sold for hundreds of millions of dollars on the International Black Market for Stolen antiquities.
Either that or it will he left to tarnish beyeond recognition
Re: Germany To Return Benin Bronze Back To Nigeria by TruthHurts1(m): 6:27pm On Mar 23, 2021
That of disappearance is more likely because of the huge sum of money involved.

The Black Market for stolen art is a billion dollar business.

At least they will focus on the artifact and celebrate it for the next 6 years..

Not all these facebook page they are creating up and down with one skewed history to another..

Meanwhile so far the Oduduwa map is Okay.

We don't need them. They will remain as unproductive as the ones that were left behind. They only gained prominence, because the Europeans were in charge.

When they return it, what exactly will happen? When the "stolen" artefacts are returned, what will change?

Africans fighting for things that they can't even handle. When all the reparations take place, what next? The victimhood is strong.
They should return all the stolen artifacts. We don't have any of their traditional German artifacts in Nigeria. The British have all their royal artifacts kept in their palaces, ours should be in our palace as well.
Re: Germany To Return Benin Bronze Back To Nigeria by Nobody: 7:51pm On Mar 23, 2021
These white folks just came to Africa and stole and stole and stole... Damn!

I learnt that a mystical huge crystal-shaped diamond that lights up big halls when exposed was stolen from Ile Ife too and today it is still being hidden by the foreign government that took it.

You sound very incoherent. Anyways, I said what I said, if you like draw a million maps, Benin, Warri and other Niger Delta cities and towns would never be part of your rubbish Biafra or Oduduwa arrangements. We are one people known as The United Republic of the Niger Delta.

Are you sure you know what ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ actually means; or you just felt like throwing around some fancy phrase, in order to sound smart?

Can we all see how good looking this artifact is. Of course, it's good looking.

To this, I implore German government to keep it with them ( at least till we are ready with capable government).

I recently went to a library in Abuja (seat of power), the library was so full of cobwebs....
Re: Germany To Return Benin Bronze Back To Nigeria by Adakintroy: 9:12pm On Mar 23, 2021
Thats why I like the whites.

When you catch them cheating they resign and retain honor.

Since we catch the north stealing oil from South under one Nigeria, they have progress further along that part. even building refinery under the name of one of their sons
