Kaduna State is a state located in the northwest geopolitical region of Nigeria (Hausa: Jihar Kaduna; ; Fula: Leydi Kaduna, ; Tyap: Sitet Kaduna). The city of Kaduna, which bears the state’s name, serves as the state capital. As of 2006, Kaduna was the eighth-largest city in the nation. Kaduna State acquired its present borders in 1987 after being established in 1967 as North-Central State, which also included the present-day Katsina State. With Ahmadu Bello University and other significant educational institutions located there, Kaduna State—the third most populated and fourth-largest state in the nation—is known as the “Centre of Learning.”
The Nok culture, which flourished from roughly 1500 BC to roughly 500 AD, is one of Africa’s oldest civilizations, and its ruins may be seen in the modern Kaduna State. The Hausa Kingdoms flourished until the area was integrated into the Sokoto Caliphate in the early 1800s as a result of the Fulani War, according to the 9th-century geographer and historian Ya’qubi. The British government established Kaduna as the Northern Nigeria Protectorate’s capital during the colonial era.
The Hausa word kada, which means “crocodile,” is said to be the source of the name Kaduna; the Kaduna River once supported a sizable crocodile population. Agriculture is a key component of the state economy, particularly the production of cotton and groundnuts. Kaduna State has experienced significant ethnic and religious conflict in the modern age; the 2002 Miss World riots in the state capital over alleged blasphemy resulted in about 250 deaths and the loss of some 30,000 homes.
