Nigeria: Southern Cameroons refugees refuse Biya regime humanitarian aid
The leaders of Southern Cameroons refugees in Nigeria have reportedly refused the so-called humanitarian aid from the ruling CPDM regime in Yaoundé. The Ambazonian leaders representing the more than 40,000 Southern Cameroons refugees in the Cross River State and Taraba told the Biya emissaries that “We do not need any help and do not want any visit from the Cameroonian government.”
The Ambazonian decision was published by the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Abuja. The signatories of the said document demanded the immediate release of President Julius Ayuk Tabe including all Southern Cameroonians arrested ever since the crisis started two years ago.
The Biya Francophone government recently launched what it painted as an emergency humanitarian assistance plan for the victims of the security situation in Southern Cameroons. The Prime Minister Philemon Yang Plan aims at reconstruction in the two Anglophone regions and is estimated at 12.7 billion FCFA.
Several hundred million FCFA have already been collected from corrupt Cameroon government officials as part of this emergency humanitarian assistance plan.
