Jeremiah Arowosegbe is completing a book manuscript on the colonial constructions of Fulani, Hausa, and other groups ethnically not indigenous to Yorubaland as minorities, through denial of their land rights, using the institutionalized instrumentalities of the colonial ethnographic state. His aim is to account for the continued impacts of such denials for citizenship, political integration, and state fragility in postcolonial Nigeria.
