On 21 December 2022 NPR (National Public Radio) reported:
Germany has returned 22 Benin Bronzes to Nigeria as part of a larger effort by Western nations to seek reparation of stolen artifacts from Africa. The Benin Bronzes are sculptures and plaques looted from the ancient Kingdom of Benin -- now southern Nigeria, not the modern nation of Benin -- by British soldiers in 1897. Tuesday's [20 December] handover is Germany's first step in fulfilling its agreement with Nigeria earlier this year to release all 1,130 Benin Bronzes from German museums.
