April 20, 2016 – Boko Haram: 200,000 Nigerians Seeking Refuge In Cameroon & Niger Set For Deportation

Close to 200,000 Nigerian refugees in Cameroon and Niger Republic have been served an eviction notice.

Governor Shettima made this known in Abuja on Tuesday.

According to him, there are over 56,000 Nigerian IDPs in Cameroon in the wake of the insurgency that has rendered many Northerners homeless.

Shettima said the Internally Displaced Persons are from Bama and Gwoza LGA of the state alone.

He said the Cameroonian authorities have indicated that they could no longer take care of the Nigerian IDPs, said another 138,000 Nigerien IDPs in Niger Republic also face the same fate.

  1. This is bad timing, considering that Boko Haram has not been effectively wiped off the surface of the earth. We know how skillful these terrorists are. They could use this opportuinity to strike those refugees when on transit.

    I hope that the Nigerian govt by now is able to predict with some accuracy the activities of those insurgents and take pre-emptive measures where necessary. It would be so painful if after surviving the terror for this long, those refugees still come back to their doom.

  2. So it’s even the Cameroon govt that are taking care of Nigeria idp camp. Niger republic and Cameroon should still be patient with them until this boko harm saga is over

  3. I think the Nigeria Gvt. need to laise with and support the Niger Rep. and the Cameroon Gvt respectively with finance, food, clothing and medically too for the up keeps of the IDPs in their respective country if they want them to stay put untill we are able to completely flush out the rest of terrorists around here. As we can see that their end is almost at hand.

    Otherwise, we should be ready to welcome our brothers and sisters back home whether we like it or not.

    I take to my strolling…

  4. So wot’s his intake for the governor voicing it out.
    seeking 4 fund 2 take care of d nigeria refugees i believe… bcos dat is d only thing dat our government can do best.. don’t even be surprise if dey re given d opportunity 2 tax d masses 2 raise fund 4 d upkeep of them wen dey arrive dey will happily do dat…
    our government is full of shame dat dey can never do anything reasonable without shouting here and there 4 assistant..
    the cameroon and niger hv taken d burden of taking care of dis people 4 a long time now without without any shout out even 2 d country of d so called boko haram victims.
    but now dey hv started opening arms wide 4 rescue wen dey hv not even arrive
