See also this page about Bamileke languages like Ngomba...
Also this page about usage of extended Latin letters in various languages:
(unfortunately, there is nothing about latin alpha, which seems to be much
more rare than u with stroke, or double-barred h)
This last page exposes other problems
1) the hooktop b has two distinct variants for the uppercase:
- Hausan, Fulful, Kpelle use a B with hooktop on the left side.
- Xhosa, Zula used a capital similar to the cyrillic soft sign (hooktop b is
obsoleted now, but there are still texts written with it)
2) the uppercase esh can be either a taller esh on the baseline, or a
greek-like capital Sigma (form prefered for Berber)
3) the uppercase hooktop y can be a Y with hooktop on the right, or on the
left or with hooktops on both sides.
