It will be Yobo's first international since lifting the African Nations Cup trophy for his country just over a year ago. The 33-year-old central defender joined Rnglish Premier League club Norwich City on loan last month.
Coach Stephen Keshi will also be running his eye over Belgium-based strikers Imoh Ezekiel and Michael Uchebo and former junior internationals Ramon Azeez and Shehu Abdullahi as he ponders his selection for Brazil later this year.
Nigeria are in Group F with Argentina, Bosnia Herzegovina and Iran at the World Cup finals.
