There are two world heritage sites in Nigeria-the Osun Osogbo sacred grove in Osun state and the Sukur cultural landscape in Madagali area of Adamawa state.
However, two sites which still benefit from traditional community-based protection are the Osun-Osogbo Cultural Landscape and the Sukur Cultural Landscape. The former falls within the remit of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments in conjunction with the Osun Cultural Heritage Council, Osun Groves Support Group and the Adunni Olorisa Trust.
The militants have destroyed most of the cultural heritage sites in the north-eastern part of the country including the Sukur Cultural Landscape. The Director of the National Commission for Museums and Monuments listed the following heritage sites in Northeastern Nigeria as destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgency: Rabeh's Fort at Dikwa; El-Kenami Prayer House Ngala; Shehus Tombs at Kukawa; Viu Kuthla (Biu Royal Graveyards); Hamma Yaji Palace and Slave Lodge; Kamala Peaks, Michika; Bokka ancient settlement of the Michika; Kram Hong; Tree Sisters Rock, Song; Yamtarwala Tomb of Ancestors; Ruins of Shehu Sanda Mandarama Dikwa; Bilewati Cave and Foot Print.
