Defense positions!
~ The Sambasian Captain ordering his troops to arm themselves.

The Sambisan Captain is a minor antagonist in the 2018 Marvel film Black Panther. He is an unnamed Nigerian militant warlord serving as the leader of the Sambisan Militants running a sex slave trade until his death.

He was portrayed by Bambadjan Bamba.


The Sambasian Captain was known for leading his army of militants to kidnap and sell Chibok girls as slaves through the Sambisa Forest for profit. However, their activities were brought to the attention of Wakandan spy Nakia, who went undercover as a missing Chibok girl. It was also told that the Captain had kidnapped a young Chikok boy and forced him to become one of his soldiers.

After two years, the Captain was seen having his army transport more Chibok girls (including Nakia) through the Sambisa Forest, that is until the arrival of Nakia's superior Prince T'Challa (Nakia's superior), who throws EMP beads to disable the militants' vehicles. Upon seeing that all of their vehicles are disabled, the Captain deduces that someone is attacking and orders his soldiers to defense positions.

After seeing one of his soldiers being shoved into a jeep by T'Challa, the Captain gives the order to fire at T'Challa. However, using his Black Panther armor, T'Challa was able to dispatch the Captain and many of his militants to their deaths while Nakia and Okoye dispatched a few. With the Captain and his soldiers dead, the Chibok girls (along with the young Chibok soldier) were freed and they bid farewell to the Wakandans before heading back to their villages.
