Nagulle (The King's guard)

The name "Nagulle" has its origin from a popular king's guard in the ancient kano emirs palace. Written history has it that Nagulle was a dedicated and very passionate king's guard, but also very boastful to his co guards. That habit coupled with his obedience to the emir and other senior guards in the palace made him popular and practically gave him power over his peers. Nagulle became very influential in many activities of the palace and stated abusing his power by intimidating his colleagues in many ways, which was why they refer to him as "Nagulle dangin sarki" (as a mockery to his behaviour). The name gradually became a ridicule-nickname to other people with his kind of boastful and discourteous attitude across kano and beyond. The name still exists mostly in typical kano city and neighbourhoods around the emir's palace, and some people nowadays pronounce it as "Nagunde".
