Lord Lugard

Soldier and colonial administrator. Born Frederick John Dealtry Lugard at Fort St George, Madras, India. After a varied military career, he entered the colonial service. Appointed governor of Hong Kong, and Governor-General of Nigeria, where he used existing tribal institutions as the basis for British rule. Knighted 1901 and elevated to the peerage in 1928. Died at Little Parkhurst, Abinger, Surrey.

2018: A critical Londonist article gives: "As Governor of Nigeria, his suppression of rebellion there was crowned with a massacre in the town of Satiru. He dissuaded Gladstone from giving Uganda self-government, opposed native education, and allowed slavery to continue among 'elite African families'."
