HC Deb 16 July 1906 vol 160 c1328

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can now state whether it has been decided to allow the chief Nana to return to his own people and country after the long punishment he has received.


The Secretary of State has decided, upon the advice of Sir Walter Egerton, to permit the chief Nana to return to Southern Nigeria and to settle at a town called America in Bonin River. A compassionate, allowance of £10 a month will be paid to him for two years, after which it is expected that he will be able to support himself.
