Some Nigerian Fertility Cults.


The outbreak of war seemed a favourable opportunity for the discontented natives to throw of the restraints imposed by government and to return to their old customs,and disturbances occured in various parts of Nigeria.Here in this volume the author,assisted by his first wife delves into the secet world of these old native customs .The facts collected here are almost exclusively such as came to the authors notice in the course of the ordinary administrative work in Degama Divsion,to which he was posted in June 1914.
