Earlier report had it that the Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall were expected in Nigeria from Tuesday, November 6, to Thursday, November 8, in a high profile visit during which the royals would also have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

They arrived to a welcome ceremony at Jubilee House where they met President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

Prince Charles acknowledged Britain's role in the slave trade on Monday calling it an appalling atrocity that had "left an indelible stain on the history of our world".

Prince Charles and Camilla have just rounded off trips to Gambia and Ghana.

Ewuare asked the Prince Charles to support the call for return of ancient Benin artefacts which were taken to the United Kingdom in 1897 by the British authorities.

Since their arrival, they've received warm reception from several Nigerians including monarchs, who paid a visit to the royals in Abuja.

Sadly, it was revealed on November 5 that the final stop of their West African tour would have to be cancelled due to a security threat in the city of Jos, Nigeria, according to the Telegraph.

The decision was made "upon advice from the Nigerian government and others involved in security and operational aspects of the visit", according to a spokesperson for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. But rest assured, Prince Charles will still make the same events happen, only in the city of Abuja instead. He is said to be "disappointed" about the cancellation of engagements that were to include a discussion on peace-building efforts.
