Photo: Frederick Lord Lugard with heads of dead Nigerians

Lol, is this really true? This is Frederick Lord Lugard sitting with heads of dead Nigerians.

Referred to as ‘father of Nigeria,’ he was the colonial administrator of Nigeria between 1914-1919. Lugard was made High Commissioner of the Protectorate of Northern Nigeria in 1900, a position he held until 1906 and for which he was knighted in 1901.  He died in April 11, 1945. 

I hear he will be honoured at the Centenary celebration for his contributions to Nigeria. Ok. I just want to know what kinda contribution.
