Tegama Agh Bakhari, Abderahman

   Sultan of Agadez during the Kaoucen Revolt. He supported the incipient rebellion of Aïr for warding off French colonial penetration into the region. After the collapse of the revolt in 1916, Tegama fled to Kaoura but was turned in to the French by a Toubou in 1919. He was imprisoned in Zinder and was murdered in his cell in April 1920. The official cause of death, however, was explained away by the French as suicide.
