Bura-Pabir (Bura) Bible

Bura-Pabir (also known as Bura, Burra, Bourrah, Pabir, Babir, Babur, Barburr, Mya Bura, Kwojeffa, Huve, Huviya) is a Chadic language spoken in Nigeria. Dialects are Pela, Bura Pela, Hill Bura, Hyil Hawul, Bura Hyilhawul, and Plain Bura.Bura has been reported to contrast a voiceless palatal lateral fricative, which is quite rare. Apart from this, its inventory is much like the very complex system of Margi. The Bura people (who are mostly found in Adamawa and Borno states of Nigeria) are known to be the one of the most hardworking class of people in both states, thus seen as proud. In Borno state, Bura people are majorly found in Biu LGA, Hawul, Kwaya Kusar, Bayo and Shani LGA's with major places include Shaffa, Yimirshika, Marama (also somewhat major), Bula, etc.

The present Chief of Army staff in Nigeria, "Tukur Yusuf Buratai" (who assumed office in 2015) is a "Bura" speaking man from Buratai, "Biu" LGA (he shares the same name with his village). The Bura people are also found in Adamawa state, Nigeria. They can be found mostly in "Garkida village", other villages include Pele-chroma(which shares boundary with Garkida but is considered to be in Borno state due to a river which dimacates Adamawa and Borno at the border of Garkida), Kawlewa, etc. There are several clans in Bura land among which are the Shalangwa, Tarfa, Balami, Dibal, Nggada, Mshelia, Mshelbila, Mshelbwala, Msheliza, Nganjiwa, Amaza, Durkwa, Dlakwa, Mbaya, Malgwi, etc.
