Default Quiver & arrows

I was wondering what members could tell me about the likely origin of this quiver & arrows . The arrows are approx 70 cm long , and are nocked. I would like to know as this will determine whether I keep it or move it on . Obviously if I do decide to sell , it will be offered here first. Thank you.

This is from central and western Sahel.
I personally donīt think the style (both the arrows and quiver) belongs just only to one concrete (ethnic) group. BTW - very nice !

Thank you Martin , I was rather hoping so , this means I shall be keeping it ! I have always liked this piece but was unsure if it fitted with the rest of my collection . Now I need some help with the ID of my various bows in the hope that one of them is also from this part of the world ! Your help would be much appreciated !
