Yes, a Civic Shuttle, but I don't know what name they used in Nigeria.

Probably a used import from Western Europe.

Based on what? Rather presumptuous, when Honda automobiles have officially been sold in this country in LHD form since the early 1970s. There are 11 official Honda retailers and a total of 30-40+ smaller, "unofficial" Honda dealers. Probably a 50/50 chance, of it being a used EU import.

Africa is one of the biggest markets for used cars, after Russia and the CIS.

Yes, but a continent doesn't define the country in this case. Africa does not only equal Nigeria, just as how Europe does not equal Germany alone. That makes sense for smaller countries like Burundi or Gambia, that have little to no automotive market. I export vehicles to African countries (sometimes Asian) myself and know the situation in Nigeria regarding official and grey-market vehicles or "tokunbo", compared to even other countries in West, East North, Central and Southern Africa.

A high-spec Honda Accord is more likely to have been imported there versus something like this. Then again, I wasn't there in the 80s when these were brand new. I just know that, you're possibly being overly presumptuous in assuming all they do is import directly from Europe. As your sentence could easily refer to South Africa, somehow importing RHD UK cars en masse. Something we both know is laughable. There are plenty of people (detrimental to my occasional bottom line), who don't bother with whatever is sent from LHD Europe or the North America, preferring to deal with officially designated major sales centres for whatever brand you name and buy what the OEM has provided for that market.

Other than affordability factors, plenty of them (even if affluent) choose "used cars" over brand-new for another reason. Under the idiosyncratic belief, a car that has been "used", has been tried and tested for durability in the rough tropical climate, versus a new or unused car that "hasn't proven survival yet". That backward mentality is dying as time passes thankfully, as old and beaten cars are plainly an eyesore.
