Government expels over 500 Nigerians

Reports say the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has expressed worry over the situation.

 

According to Channels TV, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has expressed worry over the situation.

About 313 of the deportees are said to be displaced people who fled from their lives in the wake of the Boko Haram attacks in North-Eastern Nigeria.

The UNHCR has also called on the government of Cameron to consider the refugees based on laid down international laws of asylum.

The UNHCR in Cameroon, in a tweet posted in French, and translated to English, said “The UNHCR is very concerned about these repatriations and continues to advocate for access to asylum and the principle of non refoulement.”

The Boko Haram sect unleashed terror in North-East Nigeria, causing many to seek refuge in nearby countries.

A lot is being done by the Nigerian government to ensure the region is safe and the infrastructure restored, so people in the affected areas can return home and go about their normal business.
