    People displaced by a territorial dispute between Nigeria and neighbouring Cameroon are asking for help.

    The source of the dispute is the oil-rich Bakassi Peninsula, which the International Court of Justice ruled belonged to Cameroon in 2002.

    But thousands are refusing to accept the decision, and are asking for the government to intervene.

    Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from Bakassi.
