Nigeria restored the 47 to Cameroon, which called the men “fear based oppressors” and said they would “respond in due order regarding their wrongdoings”, on Monday.
The UNHCR said the greater part of the gathering had submitted haven guarantees in Nigeria, thus their arrival damages the standard of non-refoulement, which says transients can’t be sent back to a nation where they may confront abuse.
