Kabou is a village in the Bassar Prefecture in the Kara Region of north-western Togo.[1] Due to its central location, it is used as a marketplace where people travel in from Ghana, Bassar, Kara, and Guérin-Kouka to sell goods. Formally Kabou was known for iron exporting out of a mine in Banjeli, which is about 20 km outside Kabou, until it was later privatized.

History[edit]

The city was founded by Oukpan, also known as Le Guerrier, The Hunter. The local language is Bassar.
