Can anyone give me some understanding about this haploid group please? It's hard to find information on it.

L3e2a is probably around 10 000 years old, and is quite widespread, so I'm afraid you won't get anything specific. It is found throughout West Africa in many different ethnic groups, for instance: Fali from Cameroon, Kanuri from Nigeria, Shuwa Arabs from Chad, Fang from Gabon, Fulani from Guinea-Bissau and Burkina Faso, Ashanti from Ghana. It is also quite common in African-Americans generally. I'm not sure about other parts of Africa; unfortunately many studies test only the HVS-I section of the mitochondrial DNA and L3e2a has no mutations in that part so cannot be recognized.

In general West Africans seem to have moved around, mingled, and intermarried so much that only a very specific subclade has much chance of being associated with a specific ethnic group or region, and maybe not even that will be enough. On top of that West Africa has sent migrants into most of the rest of Africa.

^I agree with the post above. West Africans seem to not be monolithic(contrary to popular belief) and no specific clade is synonymous with them imo.
