Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, alongside Meghan, his wife, will visit Nigeria in May, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has said.

Tukur Gusau, director of defence information, made the disclosure in a statement issued on Sunday.

According to the statement, Harry’s decision to visit Nigeria is a sequel to an invitation from the DHQ and will revolve around conversations on the possibility of Nigeria hosting the Invictus Games.

The Invictus Games are an international multi-sport event. Participants include wounded, injured, and ill servicemen and women, whether serving or veterans.

It is organised by the Invictus Games Foundation, founded by Harry.

The international multi-sport event also offers a recovery pathway for the affected soldiers and spotlights their rehabilitation journey.

Last year, Nigeria participated in the games for the first time. The country was the only African representative at the event, swooping gold and bronze medals.

“During their stay in the country, they will be meeting with Service members and will be hosted to an array of cultural activities,” the statement said.

“The visit is to consolidate Nigeria’s strong hold on the game and the possibility of hosting the event years later.”

Gusau said Mohammed Baduru, minister of defence, who was at the event in Germany last year, is keen on playing host should Nigeria get the nod.

The trip will also be a first for Meghan, who once said she has 43 percent Nigerian ancestry.

Additional details about the visit are expected to be made public in the coming days.
