Jimeta is a town in Adamawa State, Nigeria. The town's population was 73,080 in 1991.[1] The elevation of Jimeta is 135 m,[2] and it lies along the Benue River.[1]

Jimeta and nearby Yola, the state capital of Adamawa have interconnected histories, and, between 1935 and 1955, were unified as one town; Jimeta also serves as Yola's port[1] and it also contains Yola's airport.[3] Some refer to the two as "Jimeta Yola."[4]
