Cocoa producers in the Anglophone regions believe that the Anglophone crisis has favoured their trade with Nigeria.

According to Reuters, the Anglophone crisis has increased unlawful exports of Cameroonian cocoa to Nigeria.

As a matter of fact, since the beginning of armed confrontations between Cameroon police forces and secessionists in the South-west for instance, local buyers became anxious and faced more difficulties in going to this part of the country to buy cocoa.

So, these localities were instead invaded by buyers from Nigeria, who return to their country with heavy containers, loaded with cocoa.

Cameroon producers praise this situation for, Nigeria buyers are best buyers than Cameroonian.

According to local sources, compared to Cameroonian buyers who generally give FCFA 600 for 1kg, Nigerian spend up to FCFA 850 or even 1000 for the same kilogram.
