Authors Of Ƙaura Namoda
(101 words)

Ƙaura Namoda is a major centre in Zamfara, half way between Sokoto and Katsina. It was named for Namoda, a Fulani chief who fought with the jihadists and was given the position of Sarkin Zamfara (Zamfara never became an emirate). The town became the terminus of the railway and hence an important regional centre in the twentieth century.
