    Etymology: Gwagwalada was founded as settlement by Bassa speaking people under the leadership of Gbaga Daruwana, who migrated from the Benue Valley and settled around Kurafe for a while, and later continued wondering with his followers until they finally found themselves in the middle of a place thickly forested by raffia palms which the Bassa called Gbagala, hence the Bassa named the place GBA-GBAGALA literary means “field of the raffia palm”. Since then, the area was referred to as Gba-gbagala, but later changed by most of the Bassa speaking people as Gbagalada, this was further corrupted by the Gbagyi and Hausa speaking people as Gwagwalada.
