Nagbiegu is the appellation for Naa Abudu. A Dagomba chief, Naa Tutuari, had taken Chemba land, and the present Chemba chief, Kofi, threatened Abudu that he would take the land back. Naa Abudu replied that he is a nagbiegu, a bad cow, by which he meant that he would come and take what he wanted from them and the rest would be spoiled.
