The Kakanda land known as Muye , was founded as far back as 1480 which is equivalent to 900 A.H in Islamic calendar .
The historical origin of the Kakanda is traced to the great grand children of Mallam Mahmud a great warrior , left Egypt for world exploration , eighty ( 80 ) years after the migration of the holy prophet Muhammad ( S.A.W ) from Mecca to Madina .
Mallam Mahmud left Egypt with about ten thousand (10,000) warriors on horses and women into Nigeria area and first settled in Nga’zagamu and Kukawa respectively in present Bornu state .

However, Mahmud settled in different areas waging wars before coming to present region known as Nupeland .
He stayed for a long period of time in the city of Kukawa where he give birth to many children , among his son was Mamman Maifoni who took after his grand father as warrior and he was a personal friend of emir of Gobir by name Sarkin Musa .
Mamman Maifoni was invited by the then “ ALFAFIN ” of old Oyo empire, to support him against threaten of “ GA ” a brother to the ALFAFIN .
He “ GA ” boastfully nick named himself an “ Elephant ” and bragged that he would defeat the Alfafin , if “ GA ” choose to fight with him .

In fear of these threats Alfafin narrated the situation to his friend Mamman Maifoni , the later on hearing this comforted his friend and said if “ GA ” was an “ Elephant ”.
He ( Mamman Maifoni ) was a renowned warrior and nick named himself as “ Karkanda ” meaning Rhinoceros , he was reported to have fought “ GA ” and defeated him .

Hence the name of the tribe known as “ Kakanda ” derived its origin from Mamman Maifoni the warrior .
The said Mamman Maifoni was invited one time to Kutigi by the then village head ( named not known ) to assist him in prayers over the evil sprits that threatened the life of the community in which he did , using the opportunity to ask the community head about his historical origin which he responded that he was from Niger Republic of a tribe Ba-Asibinawa meaning the inhabitants of “ Asbin ” in Hausa wordn.

Mamman Maifoni left Kutigi after satisfying the rites ( prayers ) of the people and proceeded in search of a settlement which presently is known as “ MUYE ”.
In his search, he came across various settlements “ GOGATA ” “ EZOGU ” from there to “ ASHE ”.
Mamman Maifoni left his family at Ashe and paid a visit to the Attah of Igala his personal friend .

According to oral source , as at that time the present town known as New “ BUDON ” today has not come to existence .
However , a protracted argument arose as to where “ Muye ” was to be located out of the three settlements, their father ( Mamman Maifoni ) intervene and declared once and for all that they could first settle at the site known as Budan today , before considering another movement because this place will not be our permanent settlement , this was probably because of its proximity to “ ASHE ”.

However , the word Muye took its origin from Arabic word Muyi ( meaning water or river ) as Arabic was the language of his grand-father .

According to oral interviews , with the present Amana , some reasons were responsible for Mamman Maifoni refusal to settled at Ashe probably because of the over population and famine that struck the community during that period , secondly , probably his contact with Tsoede or Edegi the mythical founder of Nupe kingdom who wanted to established his authority over Mamman Maifoni , this could probably be responsible why Mamman Maifoni left to see his friend the Attah of Igala as the tradition of Tsode migration .

The tradition concerning Tsode’s migration from Idah contains one of the earliest lists of foods and ideas carried on the Niger , thus traditions suggest that prior to the 16th century , the Igala kingdom exercised influence over the Bini federation and other peoples up to the confluence of the Kaduna with river Niger .

These peoples sent down the river to Idah , annually a tribute of slaves, every family head a male member .
Tsode or Edegi who was said to have been fathered by an Igala king and a Nupe mother , after a period of residence at Idah his father died and he fled upstream from Idah with the essential insignia of office in a celebrated bronze canoe which was piloted by the Kyedye ( Riveraine Nupe ) canoe men at the confluence where he establish himself at Nupeko and from where he conquered the pre-existing confederacy of the Bini - Nupe .

Thus that Tsoede was originally sent from Nku to Idah .
From the evidence available, it appears fairly clear that the establishment of the Nupe kingdom was more gradual than the instant emergence proposed by the legends , this probably caused Mamman Maifoni migrate from Ashe ( Budon ) to Muye Island for more prospects and to maintain cordinal relations with Attah at Idah .

What is fairly certain is that members of the Kakanda ruling dynasty were migrants who settled and established authority over the autochthons , as the tradition of origin of the Budon Kakanda links the foundation of the kakanda ruling dynasty with Ajinzheye who oral tradition has it to be a brother of Idoko, the founder of Igala kingdom , both Idoko and Ajinzheye left Jukun together , two of them parted ways at a point below Lokoja .
