Rabih FadI Allah


Rabih FadI Allah was actually killed by the French in 1900 in Chad after provoking them into sending a large French force to subdue him. With Rabih's defeat, his empire rapidly disintegrated. All Rabih's territories fell into French hands, except for Borno which went to Britain as part of the newly created Northern Nigeria colony. The picture shows Rabih's head being displayed as a trophy by a French soldier.
