Nigerian Hausa Uniparentals
#1
The aim of this thesis was to ascertain the genetic variations and demographics in five major Nigerian populations using Y-markers. This was done by determining the genetic structures of the Afro-asiatic speaking Hausa (n=78) of Northern Nigeria and the Niger Congo speaking populations of Igbo (n=119), Yoruba (n=238), Bini (n=13) and Ijaw (n=15) of Southern Nigeria all spread over four (North, South east, south west and South south) geographical regions.



Hausa sampled were:

-47% E1b1a
-5% E1b1b
-21℅ others E (E1a, E2...)
-18% R
-9% B

The typical Niger-Congo lineage E1b1a was the most common one followed by R commonly found within Chadic speaking groups.
E1b1b which is widespread amongst most afro-asiatic speaking communities wasn't common overall, 20% in Kano being the highest rate amongst the 6 locations.
Haplogroup E excluding E1b1a and E1b1b was prevalent, unfortunately they didn't dig it further but E1a(E-M132) found along Western Sahel and in a sudanese hausa sample(16%) was certainty there. Same for E2(E-M75).
B was more present amongst Hausa than southern Nigerians

It's Interesting that B is not that common among the southern populations and yet has a significant number in the North.

Yeah, either random selection or some B subclades from the North could be East Saharan related(maybe mediated by the Kanuris and such)
