  • Michika (Mwe-cika) Local Government

    Michika (Mwe-cika) is a Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Nigeria.

    The principal tribe and language in Michika is the Kamwe. Michika local government was created in 1976. It is located in the northern axis of the state and is bordered on the East by the Republic of Cameroon. Michika is made of eight districts. Michika is the corrupted word for Mwe-ci-ka which is the Kamwe Language for "creeping in silently". Oral history has it that Michika was founded around the late 17th century by Kwada Kwakaa who was a hunter hunting on the Michika hills. "Mwe" in the Kamwe language means heaven or hills. While "Ci-ka" means creep. Kwada Kwakaa was a heroic Kamwe prince from Kuli in Nkafamiya. Legend in Kamwe land believed that Kwada Kwakaa could hunt lions and leopards by himself. A new District Head His Highness Ngida Zakawa Kwache was elected on 31 December 2013 following the death of Coffor Maunde who acted as District Head for over 50 years.

  • The Kamwe people embraced western education early and hence they have many intellectuals and have the highest number of primary school pupil enrollment in Adamawa State. Michika has produced prominent sons such as Late Reverend (Dr) John Guli, Damude T. Kwache, Boni Haruna, Mohammed Buba Marwa and Reverend (Dr) Samuel D Dali


    The population of Michika is large; estimates have varied from around 375,000 and 700, 000 depending on the census used and its methodology.

    There has been a new sensitization by Kamwe youths for the establishment of a University in Michika to be called the University of Michika

  • The town was seized by the Boko Haram Islamic terrorists in September 2014 but the town was re-captured by the Nigerian military on the 29th of January 2015.

    President Goodluck Jonathan happily announced re-capture of Michika Town from Boko Haram Islamic terrorists on Thursday the 29th of January 2015. He made the announcement while on campaign tour of Adamawa State. It is a special privilege for Michika and shows the President's concern for the Kamwe Land in particular
