Cameroon Deports 2000 Nigerians After Buhari’s Visit


Two thousand Nigerians living in Cameroon without permits have been thrown out of the country.

The Nigerians were arrested on Thursday in Kousseri, northern Cameroon and loaded into many trucks, then driven across the border into Nigeria.

The raid against Nigerians was carried out the same day President Muhammadu Buhari and Cameroon’s Paul Biya, pledged to work together to crush the six-year Boko Haram insurgency which has killed thousands, and spread to neighbouring countries.

A local administrator in Kousseri said the raid was part of measures aimed at improving security and controlling movements along the border region.
