The UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has urged Cameroonian authorities not to evict over 100,000 of Nigerian refugees in that country.
On Friday UNHCR expressed grave concerns over plans by Cameroon to evict the Nigerian refugees to Borno.
UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said: “We are gravely concerned for the safety and well-being of all these people.
“This action was totally unexpected and puts lives of thousands of refugees at risk.
“I am appealing to Cameroon to continue its open door and hospitable policy and practices and halt immediately any more returns and to ensure full compliance with its refugee protection obligations under its own national legislation, as well as international law”.
