the Commonwealth Games at Australia's Gold Coast on Wednesday.

This is the second time since 2012 that Cameroonian athletes have gone missing at an worldwide competition.

Nso said the first three athletes left on Sunday night, with two others declared missing on Monday and a further three leaving the village on Tuesday night.

Olusoji Fasuba, a member of quartet that won the 2004 Olympics Game 4x100m bronze medal on Wednesday said that Team Nigeria's relay would perform well at the ongoing Commonwealth Games.

Meanwhile, most of the remaining Cameroon delegation has left Australia now that their specific competitions are complete.


Australia is a very strong team and they are playing at home so it will not be easy.

"We wouldn't be surprised that they would be seeking Australian protection, given the situation in Cameroon where the minority English speaking Cameroonians are persecuted at the moment", said Robert Mukombozi, president of the Queensland African Communities Council.

Piketh is no stranger to Commonwealth medals, having won gold with the national four team at the 2014 Commonwealth showpiece, as well as having collected bronze in the singles competition earlier in this year's tournament. Two Cameroonian weightlifters Francois Etoundi and Simplice Ribouem were granted refugee status, competing for Team Australia this year.

"With the condition of the home based athletes, I would say they need more money than the foreign based athletes. They are still within their visas, they have the right to travel freely", Grevemberg said.

The Indian men's hockey team scored two goals in the final three minutes to overcome England 4-3 in a thrilling match to top Pool B and enter the semi-finals of the 21st Commonwealth Games here April 11.


"Like other visitors to Australia, Commonwealth Games visitors who hold a valid visa are free to enjoy their stay in Australia", he said.

In 2012, seven athletes from Cameroon were reported missing from the London Olympic Games.

"Gold Coast... are missing from their respective rooms in the Games village", the team later said in a statement.

For the second time in three Commonwealth Games‚ South Africa has failed to win a boxing medal.
