Cipu (Tə-Səgəmuk)

Cipu is a member of the Kainji branch of the Benue-Congo language family. It is spoken in Kebbi and Niger states in the northwest of Nigeria. In 1995 there were about 20,000 speakers of Cipu, which is also known as ciCipu, Western Acipa, Achipa or Acipanci.

Dialects of Cipu include Karishen, Kadonho, Mazarko, Kadedan, Maburya, Kakihum and Kumbashi. They are more or less mutually intelligible. Cipu is related to Vadi and Eastern Acipa, which are spoken in the same areas.

Cipu is rarely written, and is used mainly as a home language. Outside their homes Cipu speakers use other languages such as Hausa and Vadi.
