Swiss Parliamentarian Labels Nigerians With Ukrainian Citizenship Fleeing War Rapist

Addressing Swiss parliament on the issue of migrants fleeing war in Ukraine, Swiss parliamentarian SVP faction president Thomas Aeschi, in a rage on Wednesday 16.03.2023 attacked the character of migrants fleeing the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Thomas Aeschi falsely accused migrants in his racist speech, especially targeting Nigerians and Iraqis in his address "We call on Federal Councillor Keller-Sutter not to repeat the same mistakes and problems that were committed with the Balkan refugees. Foreigners who live in Ukraine but are not Ukrainians should go back to their home country. It must not be that Nigerians or Iraqis with Ukrainian passports suddenly rape 18-year-old Ukrainian women!"

This is a very dangerous statement that racist elements in society; can use as an excuse to justify their hate crime, I sincerely hope the Nigerian government, Amnesty International and other human rights organizations, would react to this vile attack on migrants fleeing war.
