Over 90,000 Nigerian Refugees In Cameroon

TV360 | Over 90,000 Nigerian refugees displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency are stranded in Cameroon.

This was revealed by officials from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) during a meeting in Yola, Adamawa state.

At the meeting, the officials from Adamawa and Borno states brainstormed on ways to repatriate the refugees.

Also present at the meeting was the Adamawa State Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Ahmad Sajoh.

He stated that plans for the evacuation of the migrants had reached an advanced stage.

”Necessary arrangements have been made by the Adamawa State Government to receive the refugees, who would pass through Adamawa transit camp from Minawawo camp in Cameroon.

‘’About 4,000 of the refugees are from Adamawa, and already agreement had been reached with some communities here in Adamawa to host about 1,500 refugees from Borno, who have indicated that they would want to remain in Adamawa,’’ he said.

The commissioner, who did not give the date for the commencement of the evacuation, said the refugees would be airlifted by the Nigerian Air Force.

A representative of the refugees, Ashigar Mohammed, said ”We are eager to return home.” He thanked Nigeria, Cameroon and UNHCR for coming to their aid.

The UNHCR is a United Nations programme with the mandate to protect refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people, and assist in their voluntary repatriation, loc

  1. With over five countries coming together to fight BH, and so much capital pumped
    in, that number of refugees, is too alarming and shamefull. It is the same mentality,
    to which the SC crisis, is taking. Biya, is refusing to dialogue, and telling tons of lies
    and the world is accepting. Nigeria, can contain BH, but the mass corruption there,
    would not let it happen. Other states, can swallow that number of refugees in that
    country, and it wouldn`t call for alarm. Politicians, would even, sell their parents to
    the devil, to make money. Why not dialogue, with the BH guys? They too, have their
    story. Foreign aid, has brought massive corruption to africa and the center, can not
    hold. Dialogue with BH, and stop this inhumanity on humanity, FRN.

      @ Dumb Joshua the slowly dying evil terrorist!

      Why can’t you understand that the government will not dialogue with terrorists?

      Why is that so hard for you to understand?

      Now, your proposal is that the countries impacted by Boko Haram should dialogue with Boko Haram? Your own foolish don pass craze! We know the story of the BH guys! Just like the ambazonia terrorists the BH guys must be smoked out of their holes and annihilated!

      Anyone who deprives children from education is a terrorist and must be cut open and fed to the flies!

      The world is definitely a better place without BH and ambazonia. You ambazonians should invite BH to your delusional republic of ambazonia and dialogue with them there.

      Any BH or Ambazombie on Cameroon soil is a target for neutralization!

  2. Instead of stopping dictatorships, the primary function for which the UN was created,
    it is now focused on money making ventures. That, is why brutes like Biya, are cropping
    up and florishing like they own their countries. Time is ripe enough, to call the UN, to
    orders. It is cheaper, to stop a war, than fanning it, Gutterres and co.

      @Joshua the dumb ambazonia terrorist

      The UN was not created to stop dictatorships in Africa.

      The United Nations has not changed its focus since it was created.

      The UN is a conduit for modern capitalistic exploitation that was formulated and negotiated among the delegations from the Allied Big Four (the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and China) at the Dumbarton Oaks Conference from 21 September 1944 to October 7, 1944 and they agreed on the aims, structure and functioning of the UN.

      I promised last week that the ambazonians will be very angry at the UN after the 13 May informal security council meeting on Cameroon!

      Johua, why are you angry?
      The world knows that there is no logic to your behavior so do not expect any support from the world!

    • @ Joshua
      The UN was ceated to secure western interests in the world.
      Wake up!
      The so called UN is the biggest scam ever.
      What have you been doing all this time abroad?
      You must come close to these people and se how they function, and learn how they manipulate other people/coutries, just to keep their Lifestyle and protect and secure their next generations.
      Every time you Africans decide to kill each other, thats good news to them, because you are getting far from the African dream: Afria United.
      That dream of the United States of Africa with one curency is their nightmare. They are doing everything to cruch it, and you Africans are helping them out by hating are killing each other.
      The so called UN is the biggest organised scam the world knows.
      Don’t be naiv!

  3. May force and wisdom always guide the people of Southern Cameroons (AMBAZONIA). Freedom is a human right.Together we stand to win, separated, we may easily lose.

    God Bless THE USA
    God Bless AMBAZONIA
