Well i gather these two countries can be likened to Mexico and the USA where the "stronger" of the two "swiped" land from the weakest,It's said elsewhere also that they indeed were one nation until the scramble for Africa by the British and French led to the disintegration. ....Cameroon is engaged in a long dispute with its neighbour Nigeria over rights in the oil-rich Bakassi peninsula.
There could be some truth in there.
