Jibrīl (1987), 55 ff.
From Ketu in Benin Republic, but from his second nisba evidently of distant Nupe origin, he studied under his father and other scholars in Ketu and Pobe, then at the Markaz, 1963-68. He became a close associate of Ādam al-Ilūrī, and from 1969 was a teacher and later headmaster at the Markaz, and accompanied al-Ilūrī on most of his educational and religious travels.
