Polyphase metamorphic rock with polycylic deformation in Nigeria often yields a Pan-African isotopic age (Caen-vachete and Umeji, 1987). It was consequently thought that the whole of the Nigerian Basement Complex had suffered from the Pan-African orogeny and the older unaffected rock are extremely rare. (Caen-Vachette and Umeji 1987).
