The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has accused Nigeria’s government of fabricating reports that 300 cows had gone missing in the country’s southeast.
Security agents stationed in the region, according to the outlawed group, were behind the assertions in order to tarnish the territory’s population.
IPOB said this in a statement published by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
IPOB claims that the federal government has sent several security services to the South East to aid bandits and kidnappers in their invasion and takeover of the region.
The group added that the military and police have failed to arrest terrorists who continuously attack and kidnap the residents of the region along Arondizuogu, Okigwe, Isiukwuato, Uturu and Lokpanta roads all in Imo State.
The statement reads: “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, 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 Fulani jihadists and terrorists to invade the region for the actualization of their threat to take over South East land.
“We are calling on every Indigenous tribe in Nigeria to at alert and vigilant and to be prepared because their plan is to start with South-East to pursue their conquest of other regions. So nobody should think that their own region is free from these jihadists.
“This is their agenda of 200 years ago which they planned to actualise in 2022, but we must resist them. The Nigerian government and its security agencies raised a false alarm of missing 10 to 300 cows, that alarm is only a smokescreen to invade our land. They think we are fools, but they will fail as they used to fail.
“Since Fulani bandits and terrorists masquerading as herdsmen started invading ancestral communities in Nigeria and killing innocent citizens without provocation, the latest being the Benue incident where over 20 folks were slaughtered one day, how many of the perpetrators have been brought to book?
“Now they alleged that cows are missing and they are deploying troops in search of it, but could not deploy troops to rescue even soldiers and other security operatives kidnapped by Fulani bandits in the North. What a country with missing soldiers and civilians kidnapped by bandits, but deploying troops for missing cows!
“We want the global world to take note of the plans of these jihadists in security uniforms in Nigeria.
“Furthermore, the world must look into the constant killing of innocent citizens in the South Eastern States without cause. Nigeria security agencies have mapped out the South East region for total destruction and extermination.
“We beg the world to come to our rescue because we are under serious attack. The fictitious allegation of killing 10 to 300 Fulani cows is totally false information.
“The Nigeria Joint Task Force, JTF, could not rescue Biafrans kidnapped and chased by Fulani terrorists herdsmen who are behind the criminal activities in Enugu, Abia and some parts of Imo States, but now they want to rescue cows.”
