France has officially presented to Nigeria the Nok Terracotta that was repatriated after it was intercepted in France while in transit from Togo to the United States in 2008.

French Ambassador to Nigeria Denys Gauer officially presented the artifact, a Terracotta figurative sculpture, to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, at a ceremony to mark the 2016 International Museum Day in Abuja on Wednesday.

In his address, the Minister thanked the French Government for demonstrating the will to fight illegal trafficking of cultural artifacts and urged other countries to emulate France.
