Foreign hackers – Anonymous, have taken over the official website of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The group, prominent for hacking repressive government’s website, earlier announced its decision to attack federal government agencies’ websites in solidarity with the protesters clamouring for the reformation of the Nigerian police.
This is in support of the ongoing #EndSARS campaign.
On Friday, the hackers announced that they had gained access to the Twitter account of National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) via the victim-agency’s account. They also posted #EndSARS protest materials on the agency’s twitter timeline.
On Friday night, the hackers disclosed the attack on CBN website, saying it is a cyber campaign against the Nigerian government.
“#Nigeria: International hackers & Anonymous continue the cyber campaign against the government to call out corruption, demand police reform, and show solidarity with brave protestors. #OpNigeria #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality
