E16/E17 has a Kakihum [kxe] entry, describing a West Kainji language of the Kambari group, as well an entry Western Acipa [awc] in the Kamuku group of West Kainji. Western Acipa [awc] is the language spoken in Kakihum (and the variety there could be labeled the Kakihum dialect of Western Acipa or Ticuhuun locally, see McGill, Stuart John 2009 ) and there is no different language spoken there except Tsuva'di [tvd] (another Kambari language -- the Kakihum Tsuva'di seems to be more or less identical to the Tsuva'di spoken spoken by Ava'di in the Tirisino and Tikula dialect areas of Cicipu, p.c. Stuart McGill 2010). Therefore a separate Kakihum entry is spurious. The inclusion of the erroneous entry was possibly catalyzed by the fact that Western Acipa [awc] is now known to belong with the Kambari group rather than the Kamuku group. See also: Tsuvadi [tvd], Cicipu [awc].
