Nigerians welcomed the return of a bronze sculpture from Cambridge University College on Wednesday (October 27) that was looted by British troops in 1897, setting a precedent that could pressure other institutions to return stolen artefacts to Africa. "We should be celebrating this, it should not be kept silent. This is part of our cultural heritage, we now have it," said Pius Reis, CEO of Black Innovations Africa.
