Igabi was formed by a Qur’anic scholar from Kukawa, Borno state, who lived in Rigachikun to teach Qur’an and Islamic studies due to an influx of Hausa people to northeastern Nigeria, especially Borno state, in quest of Islamic religious knowledge. The capital is Turunku.
A guy named Igabi founded Igabi town, which led to municipal governance. Mallam Ahmadu, a Borna-born Islamic scholar, created the town with more than 100 Almajirai (students). Later, neighbours’ students joined him.
In 1907, the British colonial authority of Northern Nigeria acknowledged Igabi as a district under Zazzau Emirate. Turaki Babba of Zazzau was the first district head. After Turaki Babba’s death in the 1950s, Dan Madami Zubairu, then Umaru, and now Sani took over.
First reported H5N1 (bird flu) epidemic in Africa was in Jaji, Igabi, on February 8, 2006.
