The Creation Of Sokoto Caliphate After The 1808 Jihad War

Post by Fuckman » Fri Feb 23, 2018 6:15 pm

Here is a little history on the infamous Sokoto Caliphate that has dominated Nigeria with their Fulani Tribe.

The 1804–1808 Fula Jihad War began when Usman dan Fodio, a prominent Islamic scholar and teacher, was exiled from Gobir(Gobirawa) by the king Yunfa, one of his former students..

Usman dan Fodio assembled a Fulani army to lead in jihad against the Hausa kingdoms of the north of Nigeria.. In 1805, the Fula jihadists captured the Hausa kingdom of Kebbi.. And By 1807, the jihadists had taken over the states of Katsina and Daura, and the important kingdom of Kano.

In 1808, the jihadists captured Gobir, killing Yunfa in the battle. And with the capture of Gobir, the jihadists saw that they were part of a wider regional struggle. They continued with battles against a number of Hausa kingdoms..

The war resulted in the creation of the Sokoto Caliphate, headed by Usman dan Fodio and expanded over a few years.. — The Caliphate then became one of the largest states in Africa in the 19th century...
