Germany is making plans to return a goddess statue that was stolen from Cameroon. This statue in question has been stolen for about one hundred and twenty years.
Culture they say is the identity of the people. Most people around the world are identified by their unique cultural practices. Cameroon more like other countries around the world holds their cultural values in high esteem.
Deity worship is very popular in many countries. In Africa, most ethnic groups do a lot of rituals which are in line with their traditions. The female goddess statue is called Ngonnso and also doubles as a mother deity to the Nso people in Northwestern Cameroon. It was stolen by a colonial officer, and donated to Berlin's Ethnological Museum in 1903.
