500 New Cameroonian Refugees Flee To Nigeria’s Bashu Cross River State Community To Escape Attacks By Ambazonian Separatists

More than 500 new refugees from South West Cameroon have fled into the Bashu community in the Boki Local Government Area (LGA) of Cross River State to escape attacks by the Ambazonian separatists who style themselves as Ambazonian Defence Forces.

Director General of Cross River State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Princewill Ayim, said in Calabar, the State capital on Monday that already his agency had constituted a multi-functional team with other supporting international agencies to move into Bashu to do findings of the immediate needs of the refugees.

At least 20 people were reportedly killed when the Ambazonian militants attacked them in a community close to the Nigerian border.

 It was yet to be ascertained as of Monday if there were Nigerians among those killed by the Ambazonian soldiers.

Ayim said the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced (NCFRMID) and United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) would soon issue a formal statement on the influx of the Cameroonians into Nigerian communities.

He appealed to Nigerians in Bashu and other nearby communities for the sake of humanity to play the brotherly role they are noted for by helping the refugees.
