Cameroon Sends Back 650 More Nigerian IDPs

Sa’ad Bello, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Camps Coordinator, said on Wednesday in Fufore, Adamawa, that the agency has received another 650 Nigerians sent back home from Cameroun Republic.

“So far, we have received over 9,000 Nigerians who escaped from Boko Haram attacks to Cameroun Republic,” he said. “The repatriated Nigerians were mostly women and children from Borno.”

According to him, the agency has settled the IDPs in four major camps in the state which include the NYSC Orientation Camp at Bajabure in Girei Council Area, the Malkohi IDPs Camp in Yola South Council Area, the Fufore Camp in Fufore Local Government and Saint Theresa Catholic Camp in Yola North Area.

He said that the new IDPs were undergoing intensive security and health screening, and appealed to well-meaning Nigerians and organisations to collaborate with the agency in assisting the IDPs.
