Over 90,000 Nigerian refugees in Cameroon

Posted on by

Officials from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said about 90,000 Nigerian refugees in neighboring Cameroon “are safe” and will soon return, be airlifted by the Nigerian Air Force.

The refugees, mostly from Borno State in the northeast of the country, were displaced by the unending Boko Haram insurgency.

The Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has led to about 100,000 deaths since 2009, according to the Borno State Government.

The terror group, which has been largely decimated since 2015, seeks to impose strict Islamic law in Northern Nigeria.
