Sokoto Caliphate: BASIC NIGERIAN HISTORY #16

Sokoto Caliphate: BASIC NIGERIAN HISTORY #16

In this episode of Basic Nigerian History, Dr Catel continues the discussion of the Sokoto caliphate and continues from where we left off back in episode 13.

BNH is going to be like a crash course (or an edutainment series) on Nigerian history using animation and clever commentary in order to educate and entertain. Along the way it will also touch on other parts of West African history.
