'Battle Bus' memorialised executed environmentalists

"Battle Bus" was a sculpture made by Sokari Douglas Camp in memory of Nigerian environmentalist Ken Saro-Wiwa who was controversially executed in 1995.

The sculpture was seized and impounded by Nigerian port authorities in 2015, when the art work was shipped to Nigeria as a memorial to Ken Saro-Wiwa and the eight other activists killed with him.
