Nigerian refugees have said that Cameroonian troops crossed the border into Nigeria, killed about 150 villagers, burned their huts and forced them to flee.
The refugees said on Tuesday, December 8 that they had to walk for days before reaching a refugee center.
Mariamu Abubakar, a farmer, said Cameroonian soldiers on Monday, November 30, killed about 150 people in his village near Nigeria’s Banki border post.

He was among 643 refugees who arrived at night on Monday, December 7, at Adamawa’s Fufore transit centre.
