Jibia, (or Jibiya), is a town and Local Government Area (LGA) in Katsina State, northern Nigeria. The population of the LGA was approximately 125,000 as of 2003, and the area is 1037 km².
The postal code of the area is 822.
Jibia sits along on the Nigerian border with Niger, and the border post was burnt down by a mob in 2005. According to the Daily Triumph newspaper, the mob was "hired" by smugglers angry about the Katsina Custom Command's crackdown on contraband goods.
Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) operates an ambulatory center in Jibia.
Abu Kassim, a researcher on the history of Jibiya, wrote that the origins of Jibiya date back to the wars of conquest between the rulers of Maradi and Katsina over territoriality and religion, especially after the jihad of Usman Bin Fodiyo.
