Abstract:Nupe mujihad 'Abd al-Bahaan b. Muhammed was one of four leaders who ruled in Nupeland simultaneously in the early 19th century. In Nupe historical traditions he is known as shehu (sheikh) and credited with being a wali. In this article the author re-examines his life history because these distinctions show that he must have been of more importance than other writers suggest. Map, note.
