A FILM BY AMBASSADOR LANCELOT ODUWA
INVASION 1897 is About The 1897 invasion of Benin marked the climax in the inordinate exploitation of Africans and black peoples by the West. This sinister quest began with slavery and later evolved to the famed scramble for Africa where the entire continent was divided among the then European world powers.
The shameful conquest of Africa was actually motivated by the greed and exploitation of the resources of the African people to the advantage of Europe and America. This has left Africa underdeveloped to the extent of becoming beggarly nations.
In 1897 the British Empire invaded the Benin Kingdom and made away with artifacts belonging to the Benin Kingdom
This movie attempts to open up the hidden truths behind the invasion of the Benin Kingdom from the Nigerian Perspective to theWorld
