I agree I think they are from Chad.
I'm very surprised that no one told you that they are purely decorative/touristic items. Look at the material used, brass, and the barbs/fish bones badly cut and...

As mentionned previously, this sword is crudely made, the poor cast and the Buddhist designs, are all signs of a late 20th c., not even a fake, but a Chinese fantasy.
