Bole is a West Chadic language spoken by about 200,000 people in the northeast of Nigeria. In particular in the Fika region of Yobe State and in the Dukku region of Gombe State, and also in the Alkaleri and Darazo districts of Bauchi State and the Wase district of Plateau states. The area where it is spoken is also known as the Fika Emirate, a traditional state ruled by the Emir of Fika (Moi Pikka).
Bole is also known as Bolanchi, Ampikka, Bolewa or Bolawa. Bole speakers call it bṑ pìkkà or bo Pikka ("mouth/language of Fika"). Dialects include Barea and Fika.
Bole is written with the Latin alphabet, and the first books in Bole were published in the 1950s.
