According to reports from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) official website, the game will now hold during the week of September 3 to September 11, 2018.
The ties were originally scheduled for March 19 to March 27, 2018 but have been postponed allowing the five teams representing Africa at the World Cup use the FIFA window to prepare with friendly matches.
Nigeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal are the five countries representing Africa at the 2018 World Cup.
For match day 3, the Super Eagles will face Libya at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo on October 8 with (match day four) the reverse fixture in Tripoli a week later.
Nigeria will face South Africa on match day five in Durban between the days of November 12 to November 20.
The Super Eagles lost their opening Group E fixture at home to South Africa 2-0 in Uyo.
The two top teams from each group are expected to feature in the newly-expanded AFCON tournament.
Nigeria is seeking a return to the continental showpiece after back-to-back misses in 2015 and 2017.
