INTRODUCTION  

Brinin Tudu village is a rural settlement presently under Gummi local government area in Zamfara state. It is about Twenty-One (21) kilometers away from Gummi town. Gummi town is located along latitude (Lat, 12o 06N). the village is surrounded by a number of settlements that included Daki-Takwaskwamma, Nasarawa Kifi, Falale, Birnin Magaji, Iyakakaiwa and Zauma all in the Gummi local government, with the exception Zauma which is in Bukkyyum local government of Zamfara state.

It is bordered in the east by Zauma, in the South by DakiTakwas, in the North by Birnin Magaji, while it shares border in the West with Iyaka. Birin Tudu is headed by a village head with the title of “Sarkin Zauma”. A visual observation of the settlement will reveal series of houses built with different type of materials. The predominant building type I the mud building along traditional line. Other forms of building include those of cement blocks, rooted with corrugated iron; also, some houses are made up with either clay or sticks.

Birnin Tudu settelemt was said to have been founded by a group of Zamfara hunters (who came in 1524) from “TUNFAF” village in present day Talata Mafara local government area in Zamfara state. Some of the paramount leaders of the group include DankofoDansumba and Bamurna. The Name of the settlement was derived from the location of the area, because it’s situated in the higher land, which in Hausa language is regard to as “Tudu.” Birnin Tudu settlement envelops both Agriculturalist and pastoralist, other economic activities that are practiced in the area also included Black Smiting, Bricklaying, Barbing and 10 leather work. 

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM 

In spite of the longs existing History of Birnin-Tudu, dating back to 16th C. a historical account of the area is yet to be written. This could be attributed to the absence of written document, which some writers consider as the only reliable materials for sourcing History. However, there are several Historical researches on the villages/settlements surrounding the areas of study, such as Daki-takwasZauma, Gummi, Nasarawar kifiZugu among others. It is in an effort to fill in this Lacuna in the socio-economic and political History of the area that this research set out to document the History of Birinin Tudu.
