Default Nigerian round leather shields

Both shields bought in Nigeria. The smaller one (37 cms in diameter) should be Guruntum tribe (already posted before, now just for comparision). The big one is the heaviest shield I have ever seen (or better kept in my hands). Diameter is 70 cms, the leather is thick, heavy, with residuum of some surface treatment. I bought it in Abuja, but they should bring it from Taraba state from the mountains near Gaschaka Gumpti National Park (near Gembu town). It is allegedly Jukun shield - could anybody from the colleagues confirm this tribe allocation ?
Thanks and Regards
