In every race, tribe, kingdom or nation there must be stories that chronicle their existence as a people of bounded entity
whose believes and norms are tied to their ancestral deity and faith. Kurama kingdom is one among so many kingdoms that have a truth root of existence, their being and also an origin of where they are coming from since time immemorial. I have the full doses of zest ability to disabuse the minds of some of our intruder’s settlers whose shallow understanding of their
origin convinced them to believe that Saminaka is a land originally owned and discovered by Hausa people.

The article is emanated to help many out their especially a social group media known as “Ibrahim Lazuru Gaskiya da
gaskiya” created by the present Lere LGA Chairman Alhaji Ibrahim Lazuru to foster love, unity and understanding but has
since became a mischievous forum to rancor up enmity, fuelling up religion and tribal tension that can badly affect the
fragile peace and unity that the country at large is trying to sustained. The social group seems to only have an agenda to
scuttle and barter any struggle by a Kurama persons who are the blessed owner of saminaka kingdom, a land inherited by their ancestors.

The group is out just to sow seeds of hatreds among the many tribes in Lere L G A what is capable of engineering and
fuelling up great enormity in the area.
It’s surprising to know that the sitting chairman, Hon Ibrahim Lazuru using some of his berated brain ones like Yusuf and Saminaka to be formeting trouble in the most peaceful area in
kaduna using all form of vulgar words on kurama the real owners of saminaka.
Please peace is paramount as part of our existence so we have to have a pact among the kurama and none kuram. Let
me also give some important reasons to why kurama history has became indispensable in the history of saminaka land.

This note is to educate some people as they were misiformed on who kurama people are and how, when, they became the true owners of saminaka lands and her environs.

Before the formal introduction of the Kurama Chiefdom by the Makarfi Administration in Kaduna State, Akurmi commonly referred to as “Kurama” had its non-formal traditional institution way back in 1350AD. It was truly believed that “Akurmi” people were said to have originated from Iraq. They later migrated to Egypt, Sudan and briefly settled in Chad. The search for suitable farmland, protective forest and in the spirit of avoiding Jihad wars migrated into Maiduguri Borno State where the Kurama sojourned for over 700 years before moving to Kano where they stayed for over 600 years.In Kano,kurama were believed to be the highest dominant people who inhabit the present day kantin kwari,the history
has it that the land was having a high yielding farming products-meaning was an arable land.The history revealed
also there are few of kuramas who were not willing to move down with Bugwama because of ill-health and others found
out that Hausas customs and norms is typical to that of kurama ,because of dominance from their taskmaster
(Hausas) most of them had turned up to be original Hausas in present days. Nowadays Kuramas are generally seen to be Hausas (Kanawa) play mates, a norm that stance to wade off enormity and rejuvenates love and unity in diversity (archives of history in Wikipedia).There after the leader and king (Bugwamma) made a historic
journey that was termed the Terminal Migratory Movement (TMM) into Kudaru Hills between 1350 then there was nothing like the present day Saminaka,still in search of enough land
for cultivation,Bugwama asked all his subjects to decentralizes their farming skills and prowess to hinter lands
of kuderu( present day Yarkasuwa)and her environs, Saminaka and her environs,Garun Kurama and her environs, Luwuna,Mariri, Kaku (Kayarda) where they finally settled. The
Kudaru Hills has boundary with Zazzau, Bauchi, Plateau andNassarawa States.(culled from British
