Magomi, one of the chief nations of Bornu, Central Sudan, who arrived in the 13th and 14th centuries from the north (probably the Tibesti highlands, Central Sahara), gradually reduced a great part of the country, and gave many kings to Bornu. They are scattered in small groups over most of this region, though their chief seat is the city of Magommeri in the heart of the country. The Magomi are a Negroid people of somewhat coarse type, closely related to the Kanuri, the present ruling race, speak the same language, and, like them, have long been Mohammedans.
