I Was Suprised When I Found Out That Abba Kyari Is Not A Hausa Or Fulani, See The Tribe He Belongs

I am suprised that deputy Commissioner of Police and Head of Inspector General of Police's Intelligence Team (IRT) Abba Kyari is not from the Hausa or Fulani tribe. 

Although the well-decorated police officer grew up in Maiduguri, Borno state capital,he hails from the Kanuri tribe in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe state.

The gallant and energetic Police officer who grew up in Maiduguri attended the University of Maiduguri where he bagged his bachelor's degree in Geography,before he entered University, he was a student of Government College in Maiduguri, Borno state capital. 

The Kanuri tribe boast of well known people although they are not among the three main tribes in Nigeria.

Some of the highly placed influential Kanuri people includes Late Sanni Abacha,Shettima Ali Monguno, Abba Habib, Muhammad Ngileruma, Baba Gana Kingibe and former GNPP leader Waziri Ibrahim.

It would interest you that the Kanuri tribe also spread beyond the shores of Nigeria.There are Kanuri people in Niger Republic which includes former President Mamadou Tandja. 

I wish Abba Kyari the best of luck. May Allah continue to bless him and crown his efforts with more resounding successes.
