A commission to bring back home fleeing Anglophones from the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has reportedly been created.

According to local news report the commission was created by traditional rulers in the Southwest Region and Cameroon’s Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Nji Atanga during the Minister’s peace mission to the Region.

The reports indicate that the creation of such a commission formed the high point of the Chiefs’ meeting with Minister Atanga Nji. It was equally revealed that  the Minister saluted the idea and opted for the commission to swing into action without delay.

United Nations Refugee Agency says it has registered more than twenty thousand anglophone refugees in Nigeria’s Cross river states. Of this number registered, women and Children account for four-fifth of the refugees. Reports hold that only five in every 100 of these Cameroonians have proper or independent shelter. The rest are squatting in rooms believed to host between 10 to 15 persons.

It is against these backdrop of events that many humanitarian groups have exhorted the government of Cameroon to quickly device a political solution to the situation, so that Cameroonians can safely and voluntarily return home.
