Description: Mr. Mallam Yahava Muhammad of Hadejia, Nigeria, observed a brilliant fireball moving south to north. Two loud detonations were heard several minutes later. Mr. Mallam Audu and several neighbors in Kilabo heard the stone fall and later recovered it. The meteorite was found in the crater measuring 35 cm wide by 20 cm deep in sandy soil. The meteorite had fragmented on impact into many pieces, the largest of which was 2.2 kg. A total weight of ~7 kg was recovered.

Low Ca-pyroxene, Fs27.1 PMD = 0.02. Abundant coarse grained plagioclase, mainly An84Or5, ranges from An61Or25 to An86Or3.

Specimens: type specimen, 30 g, PSF. (from Meteoritical Bulletin 87, preprint) A newspaper article about the fall can be found here.
