Alkalawa (Hausa: Alƙalawa) was the capital of the Hausa city-state of Gobir, in what is now northern Nigeria.

HistoryEdit

In the early 19th-century, Fulani jihadist Usman dan Fodio invaded Yunfa (ruler of the minor kingdom of Gobir) at Alkalawa. The city fell in October 1808, marking the end of resistance to Fulani rule in the region.[1]
