Written by admin on March 11, 2021
The first batch of 5,000 Nigerian refugees from Cameroon has been handed over to Borno State Governor Professor Babagana Umara Zulum.
The handover took place at a brief ceremony in Amchiide, a border community between Nigeria and Cameroon, close to Banki in the Bama Local Government Area of Borno Central.
The returnees were part of thousands of Nigerians, mostly from Borno, who, since 2014, had fled in batches to Minawao Camp located in Mokolo, far North Region of Cameroon, to escape Boko Haram’s killings.
Zulum, on behalf of Nigeria, thanked the Cameroonian President, other officials and host communities for taking good care of the Nigerian refugees in the last six years.
