The National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons has expressed concern over the ejection of Nigerian refugees by Cameroun Government in spite of passionate appeal.
The Commission’s Boss, Sadiya Umar, said this in a statement in Abuja.
She said the United Nations Convention on Refugees and its 167 Protocol states that no contracting state shall expel or return a refugee in any manner whatsoever to the frontiers of territories where his or her life or freedom will be threatened.
This should be on account of his or her race, religion or nationality membership of a particular social group or political opinion.
On Jan.14, persistent attacks in Rann compelled residents of the area to run into Cameroun territories for their safety.
