Kebbi State (Hausa: Jihar Kebbi; Fulfulde: Leydi Kebbi) is a state in northwest Nigeria. It is bordered to the east and north by the states of Sokoto and Zamfara, to the south by the state of Niger, and to the west by the countries of Benin Republic and Niger. Kebbi state was created from Sokoto state on August 27, 1991, and is named for Birnin Kebbi, which serves as both the state’s capital and largest metropolis. Kebbi is the 22nd most populous and tenth largest in terms of area of the 36 states in Nigeria, with an estimated 4.4 million residents as of 2016. State is referred to as “land of equity.”
Geographically, the state is located in the ecoregion of the West Sudanian savanna. The Sokoto River, which runs through Kebbi into the River Niger and continues south before reaching the Kainji Lake, half of which is in Kebbi, is one of the state of Kebbi’s most notable geographical features. The vast Argungu Fishing Festival features a variety of fish types, as well as hippopotamuses, West African manatees, and migratory African bush elephant populations.
The Fulani, Hausa, and Zarma peoples populate the whole state of Kebbi, while the Achipa (Achipawa), Boko-Bala, Dendi, Dukawa, Kambari, Kamuku, Lela, Puku, and Shanga peoples reside along the state’s numerous western and southern boundaries. The majority of people in the state (around 84%) are Muslims, while the remainder practice traditional religions like Bori and Christianity.
Up until the early 1800s, the Kebbi Kingdom, a Hausa bakwai kingdom, ruled over the majority of the area that is now Kebbi state. The Fulani jihad then attempted to take control of some of this territory and merge it into the Gwandu Emirate under the Sokoto Caliphate. Kebbi leaders battled Sokoto intermittently during the course of the following century until the British took over the region in the 1900s and 1910s as a part of the Northern Nigeria Protectorate, which ultimately amalgamated into British Nigeria until becoming independence as Nigeria in 1960. Up until 1967, when the Northern Region was divided and the area became a part of the North-Western state, the present-day Kebbi state was originally a part of the post-independence Northern Region. Sokoto state was created in 1976 together with ten other states following the division of the North-Eastern state. Twenty years later, a collection of LGAs in the west and south of Sokoto state were split off to create the new Kebbi state.
Kebbi state’s economy is heavily dependent on fishing and agriculture, particularly the production of sorghum, groundnuts, millet, onions, and rice. Other important sectors include trading, particularly in Birnin Kebbi, and the management of camels, cattle, goats, and sheep. The Human Development Index and GDP of Kebbi State are the lowest in the nation.
