Governor Zulum in Cameroon to repatriate 9,800 Nigerians who fled Boko Haram attacks

No fewer than 9,800 refugees from Borno, taking refuge in Cameroon’s Minawao camp, are to be repatriated to Nigeria.

Malam Isa Gusau, the Special Adviser on Public Relations and Strategy to Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno, made this known in a statement in Maiduguri today.

Gusau said that Mr. Zulum and officials of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development were already in Cameroon to facilitate the repatriation.

“Governor Zulum and officials of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development arrived in Marwa, Cameroon, to facilitate the repatriation of the refugees.


“The 9,800 Nigerians constitute the first batch of citizens who have shown willingness to be evacuated and resettled in Bama and Banki towns,” Gusau said.

Gusau said that a meeting on the tripartite (repatriation) agreement signed between Nigeria, Cameroon, and the UN High Commission for Refugees, would hold in Marwa in far north Cameroon.
