With millions of refugees and internally displaced people across Africa, the plight of refugees from Cameroon in Nigeria is often overlooked. Most have been displaced due to the conflict in their homeland between the government and separatists from the English-speaking minority.


The conflict in Cameroon started more than five years ago and has affected most of the four million people in the Anglophone regions. According to the International Crisis Group, at least 4000 people have been killed in the conflict, close to 800,000 forced to flee their homes and more than 60,000 have fled to Nigeria.
