Concern As Cameroon Is Set To Deport 80000 Nigerians, Victims Of Boko Haram
April 17, 2016 – Concern As Cameroon Is Set To Deport 80000 Nigerians, Victims Of Boko Haram
Adamawa state Government is worried as Cameroon is set to deport over 80,000 Nigerians into the country through the sate.
The deportees are victims of Boko Haram who became refugees in Cameroon and other Nigerians resident in Central Africa who were dumped in various camps in Cameroon before the current government’s move to deport them. While the current deportees are natives of various states of the federation, the move is coming months after some 15,000 others of Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states’ origin were deported.
Accordingly, the state government has called on the Federal Government, as well as international donor agencies, to come to the rescue of the state because of its inability to single-handedly cater for the teeming deportees. Comrade Sajoh made the call when he, alongside the Federal Government’s delegation, visited the proposed site where the deportees would be hosted.
