Nigeria sacred site under threat

It is one of the few sacred places on earth that has survived colonialism, missionary activity and modern life.

    As rapid technological change and population growth sweep across Africa, there are fears that irreplaceable cultural sites and age-old traditions will be swept away.

    The Sacred Grove of Osun, one of the holiest places on Earth for the 35 million Yoruba people in Nigeria, is currently under threat.
