The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described as fictitious alleged abduction of 300 cows in the Southeast.
The group accused the Federal government of the deployment of terrorists in the region under the guise of security agencies.
In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB called on indigenes to be prepared as their plan was to take over Southeast and other regions
It wondered why Federal Government would deploy troops over missing cows but do noting over missing soldiers
The statement reads in part: “We wish to raise the alarm over the deployment of terrorists in the South East region under the guise of security agents by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“The Government of Nigeria has started once again to deploy more military and police personnel to South East to clear the way for the jihadists and terrorists to invade the region and take over the land.
“We are calling on every Indigenous tribe in Nigeria to be prepared because their plan is to start with South East and pursue their conquest to other regions. So, nobody should think that their own region is free from these jihadists.
“Nigeria security agencies have mapped out this region for total destruction and exterminations. We beg the world to come to our rescue because we are under serious attack.
“The fictitious allegation of killing 10 to 300 cows is totally false information. The Nigeria Joint Task Force, JTF could not rescue Biafrans kidnapped and chased by terror herdsmen who are behind the criminalities in Enugu, Abia and some parts of Imo States, but now they want to rescue cows.
“They could not rescue even soldiers and other security operatives kidnapped by bandits in the North but they are mobilising to rescue alleged missing cows. What a country with missing soldiers but deploying troops for missing cows!
“Bandits and terrorists have resorted to kidnappings as a lucrative job and means of livelihoods. Almost every day they attack and kidnap Biafrans along Arondizuogu, Okigwe, Isiukwuato, Uturu and Lokpanta roads. Soldiers have never been deployed to go after them.
“Nigeria Government and its compromised security agents did not provide security for these innocent citizens but now troops are being deployed to search for cows.”
