From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ghana Bassi was a leader of the Ghana empire during the time of conquest by the Almoravids. The Almoravids had grown in power while seeking Sahara trade routes. They started a war with Ghana under Abu-Bakr Ibn-Umar and successfully laid siege to the capital city in 1067. Ghana Bassi and his successor Ghana Tunka Manin led the resistance, but the city and the empire finally fell in 1076 when General Abu-Bakr Ibn-Umar felled the capital and ended the Ghana empire, converting many subjects to Islam[1]
