From Peace Corps Wiki
Nigeria had some of the earliest Peace Corps Volunteers, starting in 1961. The majority of volunteers were teachers.
There were 30 groups who served between 1961 to 1970. A number of volunteers who served were not attached to a group -- some as late as the mid-1970s. In addition, there were another 3 groups who served between 1991-1995.
