Nigerian Political Parties: Power in an Emergent African Nation (By Richard L. Sklar)

In 1916, Ahmadiyya was introduced in Lagos, where it appealed especially to young intellectuals. During the 1930's the movement in Lagos split, primarily on the issue of foreign control, and the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam was formed under the leadership of a distinguished barrister and leader of the Nigerial Youth Movement, Alhaji Jibril Martin. In 1958 there were three main sections of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Lagos. See:
