Cameroonian refugees beg not to be deported from Nigeria
Cameroonian refugees in Bashua , Danare, Biajua, Okwa, Abo, Wula and Bashu communities in Cross River State numbering over 20,000 have begged the Nigerian government not to send them back to their country.
They fear that their repatriation might result in their being ‘murdered like chickens’.
The development followed the extradition of leaders of Ambazonia separatist group of Southern Cameroun by the Nigerian government.
A 35-year old mother of four, Marie Owan of Kagifu community in Cameroun, who held the views of most refugees said:
“We prefer to die hungry in Nigeria than die with bullets in Cameroun.”
