I'm not sure if this is contributing much new, but I hope this provides some clarity:
There is no such thing as "Abidjan FIR" in the strictest sense, rather a sector of Dakar FIR which is delegated to Abidjan ACC.
The airspace in the sector is class G from SFC-FL245 and class A from FL245-UNL, and service (control and information) is administered by Abidjan ACC on VHF 129.1 and various HF frequencies, regardless of airspace class.
There is also an Abidjan sector of the Dakar Oceanic FIR, in which Dakar ACC provides control and information on the same HF frequencies as its overland sector.
Specific to VATSIM, the GOOO and AFRN_FSS sectorfiles I have, although they were last updated in 2012 have DIII_CTR "Abidjan Control" on 129.1, and an VATNAF SOP for Dakar FIR that was written in 06/2016 (which may very well have been superseded, only my VATNAF counterparts can confirm that) has GOOO_A_CTR "Abidjan Control" on 129.1.
Hope this helps, and although I'm not an VATNAF member I am familiar with the area and am more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
