The United Nations has said that ISIS-aligned Boko Haram terrorists are not allowing humanitarian operations aimed for tens of thousands of Nigerian refugees living in northern Cameroon.

Leo Dobbs, a UN spokesman, said a team had able to pre-register more than 21,000 refugees who had fled Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria.

“It was the first time we have been able to visit these people and there are believed to be many more,” he said.

Dobbs said the refugees in northern Cameroon “urgently need assistance.”

Dobbs continued by saying that the UNHCR “would like to help and have helped in a little way, but the continuing Boko Haram threat is a hindrance to regular access.”

UN could firstly help to eradicate the remains of Boko Haram or simply… Arm and give basic training to some refugee-militia which would help protect help and refugees… Boko-Haram have shrank a lot, now they are hiding and only do hit’n’run attacks but if refugees are left defenceless, they are easy preys!
This is simple common sense!
