§ Dr. O'DONOVAN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if the abolition of the term "fetischtic marriage" as applied to native Christian marriage in Nigeria is under consideration; and if native cases under the marriage ordinance for Christians are always taken before native tribunals?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
So far as I am aware, the term "fetischtic marriage" is not applied to any kind of marriage in Nigeria. All matrimonial causes arising from or connected with a Christian marriage are excluded from the jurisdiction of the native courts.
