It was in the early years of 1700 when Mwaghavul man migrated from the Middle East in search of a comfordable environment to live in that took them to Nigeria through Borno where they first settled.
Later on, they where not comfortable there either, so they began to think of relocating to another place in order to have time to serve their god. So they moved to Plateau State and first settled with their brothers, the Angas, but there was not enough space for them to live. They went down to Barking Ladi and later to Shendam, Qu 'anpan before finally settling in Mangu. They love farming, fishing and every kind of work that will earn them a living.
The Mwaghavul Man believe in teamwork and care for one another. They love education and dedicating themselves to it.
Today the Mwaghavul are unnumbered due to their population growth and ability to move around the globe.
