About 40 years ago ,a Canoe was found in a community in Yobe when a local Fulani was digging a well .
The report made Newspapers headlines when it was later discovered German archaeologist that the Canoe was actually about 800 years old .
With analysts arguing the discovery had made nonsense of the earlier claim that civilisation actually started at a particular region of the continent.
Further argument said the Canoe probably means it was part of one used for transportation by the people who migrated from ancient Egypt to the Borno or Chad area.
To have remained in Nigeria soil many years and still intact tells how it had stayed in ancient Egypt before the migration to this area.
