Cameroon Repatriates Over 500 Nigerians


The Cameroonian Government has forcibly repatriated at least 517 Nigerians back to our country. The deportees include 313 asylum seekers who fled Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said efforts are ongoing to get details surrounding the action by Cameroon and the condition of the affected Nigerians.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is reported to be very concerned about the action of Cameroon against Nigerians.

The commission has called on the Cameroonian Government to respect international conventions and offer asylum, as against the forced repatriations.

The UNHCR is planning to sign an agreement with Cameroon and Nigeria in March, for the voluntary return of 85,000 Nigerian refugees.
Some countries are just treating Nigerians anyhow these days. No respect for giant of Africa.
