UNHCR To Relocate Southern Cameroons Refugees In Cross River
The united nations high commissioner for refugees, UNHCR says it will be collaborating with the cross rivers state government to begin relocation of Cameroon refugees living in host communities to a more permanent settlement.
The settlement located in Adagom community in ogoja local government area of cross rivers state with a capacity to accommodate four thousand refugees is expected to provide the refugees a safe heaven away from the crisis area.
Adagom settlement is where over four thousand of the twenty-five thousand Cameroon refugees in cross river state have been relocated, from the host communities where they had lived for the past ten months... Elias Enu, Lovelyn Etta And Eyon Sheba are among the refugees.

With thousands of refugees still in host communities spread across eight local government areas of cross river state, south Nigeria and the influx of more refugees expected from Cameroon, there is a need for more support from humanitarian actors to augment the efforts of the united nations humanitarian commission for refugees and the cross rivers state government
These refugees are hopeful that more help will come especially in the area of education for their children and opportunities for better means of livelihood to feed their families.
