UNHCR: Over five thousand refugees have fled escalating police violence in Southern Cameroons into Nigeria

The UN Refugee Agency says five thousand people have fled violence in Cameroon to Nigeria, the BBC reports.

Several others are feared trapped in forests.

The people are reportedly fleeing violence perpetrated by La Republique du Cameroun on unarmed civilians in the wake of the Anglophone crisis.

Scores of people are believed to have been brutally murdered by forces of La Republique as a result of the crisis.

This latest declaration comes days after the in-camera meeting between Paul Biya and the secretary general of the UN in Yaoundé.

And the fact that the content of the meeting has been kept secret casts doubt on the ability and willingness of the UN to resolve political problems in Cameroon and beyond.
