Cameroonians in the federal republic of Nigeria; seeking asylum as a result of the crisis are been urged to “fill the plane” and return to Cameroon by the end of January 2020.
After the retreatment of over 80 Cameroonians from Nigeria on November 30, 2019, the government of Cameroon is engaging on helping more Cameroonians return to their country. Noting that the campaign will help these victims of the Anglophone crisis even if they possess no passport, sources say a benefit of 200,000FCFA awaits each person who accepts to return to their home land.
The act is not the first of its kind as material aid and other motivations had been received by these victims from both the government and other humanitarian bodies.
According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugee, in 2018, 30,000 refugees were recorded in Nigeria and many more keep coming in as the days go by. The move of the Cameroonian government to see more Cameroonians return to their country is an attempt to put an end to the ongoing crisis and stop the migration of people from their native lands.
