Tebu( also spelled Toubou or Tubu )

are traditionally nomadic, black tribes found in Libya, Chad, Sudan and Niger. There are at least 12,000-15,000 Tebu in Libya, though community representatives claim their numbers could be much higher, up to several hundred thousand. Most Tebu live in the Tibesti mountain range and the southern towns of Sabha, Kufra, Murzuq and Qatrun.

They speak a language belonging to the Nilo-Saharan family
