Many Nigerians, Others Attacked In Tunisia as President Saied Calls Black Africans Criminals

Many Nigerians and Ivorians have abandoned their houses in Tunisia in the face of state-sanctioned attacks, seeking asylum at their country’s embassy.

They were attacked by Tunisians as President Kais Saied continues to intensify discrimination and discriminatory prejudice against Africans with dark skin.

Mr. Saied recently declared that Sub-Saharan migrants were on a mission to undermine the country’s Islamic Arab identity, and that their presence in the country must stop.

“There is a criminal plan to change the composition of the demographic landscape in Tunisia and some individuals have received large sums of money to give residence to sub-Saharan migrants,” he said in a statement.


Mr Saied also addressed the issue during his country’s national security council meeting, referring to the migrants who have sustained the country’s informal economy with surplus cheap labor as “hordes of illegal migrants.”

He claimed that their presence in the country contributed to “violence, crime, and unpleasant acts.”

Mr Saied insisted on the “need to quickly put an end” to the migration as it was an “unspoken goal to consider Tunisia a purely African country, with no affiliation to the Arab and Islamic nations.”

Hundreds of Sub-Saharan migrants have been targeted since the declaration, with the majority losing their housing, jobs, and freedom.

According to the Forum Tunisien Pour les Droits Economiques and Sociaux (FTDES), a country advocacy group, approximately 300 migrants had been arrested in the attack on fabricated accusations.

The FTDES criticized the violation of migrants’ rights and urged Tunisian authorities to “fight against hate speech, discrimination, and racism against them.”


The group also asked the government to “intervene in the case of an emergency to ensure migrants’ dignity and rights.”

“(We) call on the Tunisian government to respect its commitments to the implementation of international agreements on the rights of migrant workers and refugees, as well as the recommendations of the Universal Periodic Review and The Committee on the Protection of Migrant Workers,” it added.

Tunisia’s actions constitute blatant violations of the African Charter on Human Rights and Peoples, as well as their commitments under the 1951 Geneva Convention on Refugees, which Tunisia ratified in 1957.
