10. Chamba People of Northern Nigeria and Cameroun

According to a UNHCR report, the Chamba ethnic group is composed of people of two quite different languages belonging to the Niger-Congo family. In ethnographic literature, these languages are traditionally called Daka and Leko and speakers of many dialects of both of these languages identify themselves as members of the Chamba ethnic group.

Chambaland, i.e. the central Chamba area, where the majority of the Chamba live, straddles the present border between Nigeria and Cameroon. Chamba Leko speakers are restricted to the easternmost part of the central area, for the most part on the Cameroon part of the modern border. The remainder of the Chamba are Daka-speaking (Raymond Boyd).
