About 133 Nigerian refugees who were displaced to Cameroon by the Boko Haram insurgency in Adamawa State have returned home
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the returnees touched down at the Yola International Airport aboard Nigerian Airforce C130 at exactly 5:00pm local time on Thursday.
Officials of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons, said the refugees volunteered to return home on their own.
Speaking to newsmen, a director at the Refugees and Migrant Affairs of the commission, Lawal Hamidu, said that the exercise was not “repatriation, but the refugees voluntary signed to return to their ancestral homes”.
While recounting their experiences over there in Cameroon, some of the refugees described their situation as nasty.
According to them, life over there was difficult.
