Nigeria may lose Obudu to Cameroon

The ongoing border demarcation between Nigeria and Cameroon may lead to the loss of prominent landmarks like Agbokim waterfalls and Obudu resorts. The UN led boundary readjustment team led by Zimbabwean, Isaac Baya, are currently in Danari in Boki Local Government of Cross rivers state.

One of the beacon stones, beacon 113, which was erected in 1913, is missing and this has led to suggestion that a straight boundary line be drawn. If this is allowed, towns in up to 10 local government areas in Nigeria’s Cross rivers state may be lost to Cameroon.

The ongoing boundary adjustment stems from the 2002 judgment of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which ceded the Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon. A Green Tree Agreement, signed by both countries, prescribes the adjustment of the boundaries of Nigeria and Cameroon Lake Chad in the north down to the Atlantic Ocean in the south
