Oba of Benin Receives £2.5m Artefacts from Britain, 125 Years After They Were Stolen

There was great jubilation among the royal family and people of Benin Kingdom on Saturday following the official handover of two artefacts: Cockerel and a bronze bust to the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II.
The returned Cockerel is valued at £2million while the Oba’s head is valued and insured for £500,000 pounds.

The two were part of the hundreds of looted artefacts during the British invasion of the kingdom in 1897. This is coming as the African Union (AU) has added its voice to the call on European countries to return Africa’s artefacts in their possession.
The two artefacts were presented on Saturday to the Oba of Benin by the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Mr. Sarafa Isola.

Speaking during the presentation, Oba Ewuare II, described the return as the beginning of the restitution of the artefacts that were looted in1897 during the military expedition by the British in Benin Kingdom.
The monarch, who spoke through Prince Aghatise Erediauwa, said: “For us, our bronze does not transcend mere art. They are mostly of religious significance to us and these two bronze pieces will return to where they rightly belong.

“I will reiterate that the bronze and other works that were looted from the palace must be returned back here directly or through the agency of the federal government,” the monarch explained.
While expressing appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for expressly directing that the two bronzes be handed to him directly, the Benin monarch also commended both Jesus College of Cambridge University and the University of Aberdeen for their pace-setting initiative in returning these two bronzes.On his part, the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Isola, said history was being made as the artifacts were being returned to right the wrongs of the past.
“My assignment here is to directly bring these objects to the Oba of Benin Kingdom. That is the presidential directive.
“Value has been added to these artefacts. I am not aware of the value as at when it was taken away but as at today, the Cockerel is valued at £2million while the Oba’s head is valued and insured for £500,000 pounds. We will still see many of them come back and it is a great treasure for Benin Kingdom and Nigeria.” Ishola also commended the British Government for granting export licenses for the artefacts at no cost to Nigeria, hoping that more of the looted artworks would be returned.
Also speaking, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, represented by his Chief of Staff, Osaigbovo Iyoha, pledged to support the palace in the return of the artefacts.
He said any institution willing to return the artefacts should liaise with the palace.
Earlier, the Director General, National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM), Prof Abba Isa Tijani, said history had started to take its proper shape during the reign of Oba Ewuare II, as the looted artefacts have started coming to their place of origin.
According to him, these artefacts are living arts, artefacts of the Benin people.
“They are not produced for the sake of money, aesthetics but part of their history, culture and daily life,” he added.Meanwhile, AU has added its voice to the call on European countries to return Africa’s artefacts in their possession.
President of AU, Mr. Macky Sall, made this known during his speech at the ongoing EU-AU summit in Brussels.
He said the restitution of African works would remain a matter of high priority, insisting that they were part of Africa’s ‘civilisational identity’.
“If we want to build a new Europe-Africa relational ethic, based on respect and recognition of historical facts, we must pursue the work already started through the recommendations of the Savoy-Sarr report,” Sall explained.
His position was part of the eight proposals by African leaders as their contribution to the new partnership with Europe.
As colonial masters ‘conquered’ Africa, thousands of its cultural artefacts were stolen. The conquerors took Africans as slaves to work on plantations and to build their countries while the artefacts were displayed in museums.
For instance, in 1897, the British launched a punitive expedition against Benin, in response to an attack on a British diplomatic expedition.
Apart from bronze sculptures and plaques, innumerable royal objects were taken as a result of the mission and these are scattered all over the world.
While restitution has begun, Sall’s call has reinforced the stance of the African people on the ruins of colonialism and the clamour for the return of their stolen heritage.
Sall also called for a revision of the investment risk evaluation criteria in Africa, noting that, “the risk perception remains considerably higher than the real risk, which results in high insurance costs, penalises investment and reduces competitiveness of our economies.”

Atiku’s wife gives reasons for divorcing ex-vice president, clarifies row over assets

Jennifer, one of the wives of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, has confirmed her divorce to the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.

In a statement obtained on Tuesday, the ex-VP’s wife explained that she didn’t request divorce because Atiku married a new wife.

“That His Excellency married a new wife was never the cause of our problem as many have said. His Excellency is a Muslim and I have never questioned him about his wives or intended,” she said.

According to her, some of Atiku’s friends tried to mediate and stop the divorce but their efforts failed.

Jennifer explained that “the core reason for the divorce was disagreement over my continued stay in the United Kingdom” among other “long-standing issues”.

She also claimed that Atiku had requested to collect an asset previously given to her, adding that the property in Dubai is a subject of litigation.

The estranged wife added, “During the initial mediation discussion, His Excellency denied that he gifted the house (matrimonial home in Asokoro); even after I showed him the document with the signatures of his aide, His Excellency asked me to give him the deed of gift.

“’When I asked him, where will I and the kids stay when we come to Nigeria?’, he told me that since I am the one that asked for a divorce, I should find a place to stay, and subsequently, I moved out.”

Atiku has yet to make any public statement on the issue as of the time of filing this report.

Also, efforts to get his aides to react to the claims made by Jennifer failed.


North Group Demands Medical Evidence To Stop Tinubu

Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has called on Nigerians to come out with convincing evidence that national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, is not fit to contest the Presidency in 2023 on health ground.

The Arewa leaders said without such evidence, Tinubu should be allowed to vie for the office.

Spokesman of ACF, Emmanuel Yawe, stated this, yesterday, against the backdrop of the APC stalwart’s declaration that he would run for the country’s top job.

According to the group, Nigeria must be saved the agony of having any President with health challenge to run the country.

“If people have issues or evidence about his (Tinubu) health, let them come out and speak. Let them provide evidence that he is not strong enough to contest for the Presidency or hold the office.

“The people, who have the evidence that Tinubu is not strong enough for the office of Presidency, should save us the agony of having a sick President in office. They should speak out,” ACF stated.

It cited the late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who was sick and died in office, leaving the country in constitutional crisis.

Ihechi Ebe: Lady Who Kept Her Virginity Till Marriage Shares Her Story

The lady identified as Ihechi Ebe on Facebook narrated how she was turned down and castigated by several men, because she refused to give her body to them.

Read her story below;

Yes, I have given it to the only man who deserved and worked for it.

Although very painful, but, I am fulfilled because it was my sole desire to do this after marriage.

For those who castigated and doubted, you can rest now.

And for you who called yourself a lover, attempted to rape me to have it by force, God has put you to shame.

Ohhhh, I fought, I fought so hard to keep my vow to God, and I am so fulfilled having succeeded and I thank God for the man I call husband. Four years of patiently waiting isn’t moi moi.

And for you who doubted my virginity and needed a confirmation first before you believe, na mumu dey worry you, a real man believed it without attempting to confirm it and he patiently waited for four years, now, he has got it in its fullness.

You the rapist lover who attempted to take it by force, God done over punish you and you never succeeded, a real man has patiently waited for four years, now, he has got it and made it his customized size. Ntorrrrrrr.

I am not proud, but the truth is that I am blessed among women because I honoured God, and in return God honoured me with my own bone man.

I am also a blessing to my husband, real women are blessings to their husbands. I am a real woman.

Grace in me didn’t just get us married, it gave us job. The oil on my head is excess.

My husband has looked for a job for six good years, and just two weeks to our wedding, God gave him a job at Lagos. Isn’t grace at work?

For those who mocked him that after marriage, he will suffer as a jobless man, and those who castigated me for accepting to marry a jobless man, God has put all of you to shame. What God can’t do not exist.

Congratulations to you honeym.

Thank you Jesus.

My Journey of Life Part 1.

I made a post about my virginity and you all are killing yourselves, well, I don’t know why it’s your headaches, but, you may be fast with killing yourselves, I will gladly come for your burial.

Ohhhh, yes, I am very proud of it and my mum is very proud because it wasn’t easy, in fact, I felt nobody would ever buy the idea of keeping it till marriage, until I met my husband man.

The journey of keeping it started from childhood, my mother nurturing me to be a Rev. Sister, at the age of 7, she led me to receiving first holy communion, after which she informed me of her vow to God to lead me into being a Rev. Sister. But, I never bought the idea, being in love with kids. Hence, my vow to remain a virgin till marriage set in. There comes all my temptations as a single lady.

And to those who feel my post isn’t necessary, only fools eat the glory of God or keep silent when God does wonders.

In search of true love, I met a whole lot of men, both the richest and the poorest, but, my vow was always a problem, as the society is so corrupt to accommodate it.

The very first man I met, didn’t just kick against it, cheated severally, called me names, asked me whether I think he should leave ebe ana agba afa gaba ebe ana aru agwu. He castigated me in several occasions, just because of my refusal for sex. He made two attempts to rape me. The last time, being on my sick bed, but I fought with my last strength. He felt he succeeded and left to tell my best frien, that the thing that’s making my head to be big, he has taken it by force. Within me, I knew he was just being a fool, and I thanked God for saving me, and ended the relationship.

It got to the turn of who called himself a pastor in school, since I wasn’t forthcoming with what he wants, he started having affairs and in my usual manner, I felt I shouldn’t disturb myself since I wasn’t ready to give in either. The relationship still ended with a girl he claimed to be his sister. Na my business? After all, I lost nothing.

The other one who became a custom officer hustled so much for it, but, it’s a no go area, the relationship still ended, and to me, there is someone out there who will respect my vow.

I fought and embarrassed a particular one who felt all his life was in it and felt he would ill talk me into succumbing. Omo, God is better for me than any man. My relationship with him matters most, so, I beat him up to prove that point to him.

Abi legion of Mary brother who got frustrated with my refusal, impregnated another woman. How e take remove anything from my body? I cared less.

One Prince of Delta State said it plain to me that he will never get married to me unless he tastes what he is going into. To me, he was very senseless at that point irrespective of his riches. I let him and his riches go to hell.

They mocked me, castigated my desire, called me names, but like Christ, I was never moved by their spittle.

There is one in particular who bragged to me about how he slept with assorted types of women who are more classy than I am. To him, I would feel bad, but never, it made my heart stronger.

I never came to any social media to make noise, but, I kept believing and trusting God that there is a man out there who will understand and keep this singular quest for me, hence, I wasn’t discouraged.

I can go on and on to recount so many of them, but the real g was somewhere waiting to meet me.

Finally I met my husband man on the 20th day of May, 2017, he promised to make my desire and vow a reality. And indeed he showed how great a man he is.

My husband didn’t marry me on a platter of gold, neither did I.
We went through a whole lots of challenges which would make 99.9% of men end the relationship, but he never did. He would have said, this girl isn’t satisfying my sexual urge, let me push her away, let me go into other women, but he never did such.

He fought so hard to keep me and make me his wife. He promised so with his life. He faced so many castigations, attacks, rejections, yet, he stood steadfast in his promises.

I made him everything to me. Posting his pictures on my wall made many uncomfortable, just as they are castigating my virginity post, they castigated my posting his pictures and criticized it. The same people run up and down disabusing his mind from posting my pictures any time he does, but that never changed anything.

I once had an accommodation problem and couple with him falling ill, he accommodated me. Yet, never took advantage of that. He respected my vow and desire.

When people never saw any sign of pregnancy, they started forming stories, castigation became the order of the day. They said two things are involved, either I am not medically ok, or he isn’t medically ok, if not, why haven’t I been pregnant for the past four years.

To end the challenges around us, some advised that I get pregnant for him and my question always was, how possible would that be considering my vow.

They publicly and privately discussed us and doubted us when we said, we hadn’t done anything yet and we are waiting till after marriage.

They mocked us before us, privately and publicly, I kept calm while praying to God to make this time a reality.

It was our private life, but idle minds made it their public affairs, dragging us up and down.

I remember two girls from my class had a bet with me, that, on my wedding night, I would be embarrassed as it will be confirmed by my husband that I am not what I said I am.

Some said that I am not a woman, that’s why I haven’t been pregnant, I wondered what the society is turning into, why nobody believes us and everybody puts interest in my being pregnant even when I was not yet married.

Each time we planned working towards our settling down, one problem or the other will set in, and the plan would fail. It repeated up to five times.

The last problem we had was in December 2020, I never knew we would reconcile, I felt that was the end of us. Because of so many challenges all over, I kept praying to God to separate us by himself and that if we aren’t for each other, we should never reconcile, but if he is my husband, God should find a way to bring us back to each other.

On my own side, I tried making moves to forget everything about him. I tried to fall in love with another, but, it wasn’t possible. Each time I tried, all about him was in my mind, and tears always rolled down my chicks, falling in love with another wasn’t possible. Moreover, all other men are the same. They wouldn’t respect my vow.

I still met another yeye guy who taught I would fall mugu because he is beginning to see change as money.

He stupidly told me that he needed to confirm my status before he would believe that I am a virgin. That provoked me to consider my love when he came asking for forgiveness.

I let go and accepted him back expressing my fears to him, and he still vowed to make me proud.

The stupid guy started posting pictures of a girl on his status, when I noticed that, I took him for a fool, knowing that my testimony is near.

Today, in all the challenges, difficulties, wahala, turbulent storms, wicked advises he wasn’t shaken by any of them and today he made real his promises.

If he fought so hard to keep his promises to me, why then will I not make it known to the whole world through this media, how a great man he is?

Why shouldn’t I testify of the goodness of God to me.

I urge you all to reach out to this great man and congratulate him for me and stop being envious of what you can never do.

I asked him today, honeym, what if you had tried it after marriage and found out I lied to you, what would you have done? He said, babe, there is no what if. I believed you and I knew that you weren’t deceiving me. If you had done something, I would have known too.

At that point, I remembered how comfortable he was and never suspected my movements.

Honeym, may heavens honour you, may heavens lift you, may heavens prosper you. For this singular act of yours, fulfilling your promises, you shall never know downfall. The God I serve shall keep you above your equals. The love we found in each other will never die. Our home is blessed. God’s favour and blessings will remain ours.
I love you honeym.

I don’t care about haters.


BBNaija Promotion Of Sex, Nudity Is Nauseating – Professor Wole Shoyinka

Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka in an interview with the UK Guardian over the weekend, described the Big Brother reality show as nauseating.

“I find it nauseating. I watched Big Brother Africa out of duty when it first came out in 2003. My friends used to rush home.

“They would say: “Excuse me, I must get back. I’ve got to watch this episode,” Mr Soyinka said.

The Nobel laureate added that the show promotes people watching nudity and sexual activities, contrary to his belief.

“I think I managed about two and a half episodes. But the voyeurism was totally contrary to everything I believed.

“So I haven’t seen the new version at all. I’m not going near it,” Prof Wole Soyinka.

Asari Dokubo Forms Biafra Customary Government (BCG)

Asari Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, has declared the formation of Biafra Customary Government (BCG).

Uche Mefor, BCG’s head of information and communications, said Dokubo also named those who would serve as leaders in the government alongside himself.

He added that they would proceed to set up provincial structures for the new government.

“We as people have resolved that as Biafra, it’s time for us to take our destiny in our hands and bring freedom to ourselves and our children and the generation of Biafrans yet unborn,” he said.

“I hesitate a little but I thank God that it’s time for us to do our duty and our service to motherland, I have accepted this role. I have dedicated my life hundred percent to play this role.

“My first act today in taking this position is to name those who would be on the driver’s seat to navigate through this period of tempest, this period of uncertainty with me.

“I want to call on our brother, George Onyibe to come on board to join as the secretary of the defacto customary government of the State of Biafra. He will take care of the administrative, day to day administration of the Biafra State.

“I also call on our brother Emeka Emeka Esiri to take care of the legal needs of this nascent government.

“My brothers and sisters, the four of us will kick start the process, others will come on board. We want volunteers who are committed, we want volunteers because there is nothing anymore. We are the people who have volunteered to salvage ourselves and the rest of us.

“I also call on Biafrans in the various province of the Biafra nations in Aba, Abakiliki, Anang, Awka, Calabar, Degema, Eket, Enough, Nsuka, Ogoja, Oji River, Okigwe, Onitsha, Opobo, Orlu, Owerri, Port Harcourt, Umuahia, Uyo and Yenegoa province.

“We are going to proceed to set up provincial structures of government starting with provincial assemblies and provincial governance and administrators.

Dokubo also noted that although the new Biafran government would not go to war, it would not be stopped.

“Nobody can stop us. Nobody can blockade us as they did in the first war. We’re not going to fight any war with anybody, we’re walking to freedom,” he said.

“We will not shoot any gun with them, they will prepare their weapon but they will have nobody to kill with their weapon.”
