Searching, throwing stones, harassment … In line with the Inside Ministry, clashes between Ivorians and Nigerians broke out on Wednesday within the districts of Abobo, Anyama, Yopougon and Angré in Abidjan. The Inside Ministry reported “ten wounded, twelve arrested, six autos burned and a dozen shops looted.” One other supply throughout the police couldn’t affirm this report on Thursday morning.

In line with Inside Minister Vagondo Diomondé, these incidents had been triggered by a video whose interpretation was influenced by false feedback. This video, which has been circulating extensively, exhibits people beating males immobilized on the bottom, virtually bare and with their fists tied, below the passive eye of armed troopers, they’ve been portrayed on social media as Nigerians attacking Ivorian migrants. In point of fact, it’s photos taken in Nigeria two years in the past that in accordance with a each day newspaper in Ivorian present “components of Boko Haram sect arrested by the troopers from Operation Secure Heaven”.

“The nation has discovered peace,” assured Vagondo Diomondé, who spoke on Wednesday on the nationwide tv set at 20.00. “We shall be disagreeable with all of the troublemakers who will illustrate themselves in these methods to undermine social cohesion,” he mentioned.

Among the many observers, many questions come up about these manipulations of knowledge to know who orchestrates them and who would take pleasure in creating disagreement between foreigners and Ivorians within the Ivory Coast.
