Share This

A group, Ethnic Youth Leaders For Peace in Nigeria ( EYLPN), has called on Federal Government to stop unjust repatriations of Cameroonians who were seeking refuge in Nigeria.

The group led by its national President , Comrade Edede Franklin made the call in Abuja while briefing newsmen on the plight of some of its members.


Mr Franklin said some Cameroonians who left their country to avoid unjust prosecution by the government of Cameroon led by president Paul Biya were forcefully repatriated by the president Buhari led administration since 2016 .


According to him " In 2017 , the Nigeria government raided a refugees community in Taraba State and forcefully abducted and repatriated 37 refugees back to Cameroon .

" On January 5 ,2018 , the government also abducted 12 Southern  Cameroonians in an hotel in Abuja and forcefully repatriated them to Cameroon".

The group called on the federal government to respect the federal High Court ruling of March 1st which mandates it to return and compensate all those southern Cameroonians refugees who were forcefully repatriated".

The group also called on Nigeria to assist in their return , guarantee their safety and protection until the ongoing genocidal war in southern Cameroon comes to an end .

"The federal government should take active steps to end all police harassments of all innocent Southern Cameroonians refugees" .

"Nigeria should also unite efforts with all human rights bodies operating in Nigeria , to speed up the documentation of all refugees which have largely been neglected by both parties".

" The federal government should make available essential health  facilities and sustainable nutrition for refugees" .

"Nigerian Cameroon relations have been mutually beneficial especially in the area of trade and counter terrorism. Therefore , the federal government should get actively involved and play a major role in resolving the crisis in Cameroon which has now clearly affected Nigeria in many ways".

While threatning legal acrion if the federal government fails to meet thier demands within Seven days, the group also called on all other international community such as ECOWAS , A U , the European Union  to prevail on president Muhammad Buhari's government to respect Court orders , the Rule of Law , and ensure that those refugees whose rights have been violated are compensated in line with the ruling of the Federal High Court .
