Civil Unrest/Political Tension
We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution due to political uncertainty. You should avoid demonstrations and large public gatherings throughout Cameroon as they may become violent.
Bakassi Peninsula: We strongly advise you not to travel to the border area between Cameroon and Nigeria in the region of the Bakassi Peninsula. Sovereignty of the area had been disputed for many years and was handed from Nigeria to Cameroon on 14 August 2008. Tension in the area remains high and resettlement of the residents of the region is being negotiated. Tensions also remain high between the police and security personnel of both countries and you risk being caught up in localised fighting that may erupt without warning.
