The United Nations (UN) has vocally voiced its resentment after the Libyan Interior Ministry revealed how three Libyan men stormed a factory in Tripoli, doused a Nigerian worker in petrol, and set him on fire on Tuesday, October 6.
The United Nations called it “another senseless crime against migrants in the country”.
Tripoli’s interior ministry on Wednesday said the three suspects, had been detained for the attack on the Nigerian man who has not been named.
Witnesses described the men who set the Nigerian man alight.
Reports confirmed that attacks like this are often, carried out by Libyans on migrants in the North African country.
Federico Soda, head of the UN’s International Organization of Migration mission in Libya tweeted thus: “We are horrified by the killing of a Nigerian migrant worker in Tripoli, Libya by three men yesterday. The young man was burned alive, in yet again another senseless crime against migrants in the country.
“Those responsible must be held to account”.
