    Thousands of people are fleeing unrest in English-speaking areas of southern Cameroon into southern Nigeria.

    The government has banned public gatherings, suspended transportation and shut businesses as activists seek a state independent from the majority French-speaking areas.

    The more than 30,000 refugees now in southern Nigeria are being looked after by the Nigeria refugee agency and a few non-governmental organizations.

    But many say they don’t have much to eat or anywhere suitable to live.

    Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports from Etung, southern Nigeria.
