More Than 190 Nigerians From Central African Republic Arrives Yola

A total of 197 Nigerians who fled the Central African Republic (CAR) following the intensification of sectarian conflict in the war- ravaged country have finally arrived Yola.

The Director, Search and Rescue, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Air Commodore, Charles Otegbade, who spoke shortly after receiving the returnees, noted that after rigorous scrutiny, the returnees were all ascertained to be Nigerians.

Otegbade said that following the escalation of the civil unrest in CAR, the returnees fled to Cameroon Republic early last year and were at an international camp facility in eastern Cameroon Republic.

He stated that the International Organisation for Migrants in conjunction with Cameroonian authorities brought the returnees to Nigerian border town of Sahuda, in Mubi South LGA of Adamawa State, following the closure of the camps.

“NEMA has received a total of 197 Nigerians from International Organisation for Migrants with the support of Cameroon authorities.

“The development follows the closure of the International camps by the organisation at Kenzo and Garua Bulai, all in eastern Cameroon Republic,” Otegbade said.

The director confirmed that the 197 Nigerians were the last batch evacuated since the CAR conflict erupted in late 2013 and early 2014.
