Abstract:Presents a healing prophet, who emerged in the 1920s in a period of crisis among the Mbula people in Adamawa in Northeast Nigeria. The author analyses the personal career of the prophet and the background and development of his movement in order to point out similarities and differences between him and other healing prophets in West Africa, and analyses the attitudes to the prophet of Danish Christian missionaries in Adamawa and the consequences of the prophetic movement for Mbula-missionary relations. The data derive from unpublished and printed material from the Danish Sudan United Mission. Notes.
