Does /ᵐb/ derive from *mb?
Ultimately not, no [cross]
Does it derive from a sequence of a nasal and an obstruent?

Yes, at some point [tick]

Yes [tick]
I hereby declare you winner. Btw, I was thinking that this word is ambigue in Mannika, because it retains the original meaning 'to command' but also aN- was reinterpreted as a recepient/goal applicative and the verb can therefore mean to offer (s.th) to s.o. (with an obligatory accusative case recipient argument) derived from /ɓə̀dán/ to offer s.th. (to s.o.) with an obligatory accusaive case theme argument.

It is not a compound word, if that is your meaning.

To rephrase the question: Is the word morphologically complex? Does it include more than one morpheme (affix/root)?
