Kamo of Nigeria

Introduction / History
There are five Kamo clans living in Gombe State, Nigeria. There is also a large dispersion overseas. The Kamo believe that their ancestors migrated from Yemen many years ago. They earn their livelihood by working in farming, small business and some civil service. Christian influence has been present in the area since the 1920s.

What are their beliefs?
Until Kamo people saw Jesus speaking their language from the "big screen," many assumed Christianity was a religion for foreigners. Didn't the ancestor spirits speak Kamo? The confusion had left even many church-goers trapped in fear of the capricious spirits they believed hovered in their midst and could only be pacified through traditional African religious rituals and regular sacrifices.

But something different happened when the "JESUS" film revealed new truth from the God of the Bible, and the people received His Word in the Book of Luke. Believers started hungering to know more. They also wanted to be able to offer this news in their own language to friends and neighbors who need hope and freedom from suffocating fear.
