Anonymous, an online network known for launching cyber attacks against government institutions, has hacked the websites of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and that of Amuwo Odofin local government area.
While that of EFCC showed that it had been brought down completely, that of INEC opened but in the offline version.
A tweet by Anonymous read in part, “Official website of @officialEFCC has been taken down in support of #EndSARSProtest. CHECK HOST : https://check-host.net/check-report/df89d3bk838 TARGET : https://efccnigeria.org/efcc/ You should have expected us! #EndCorruptionInNigeria.
“Nigerian government, we will not allow this corruption. We will not allow this police brutality. Your websites of @officialEFCC have been taken-down so far by my attacks and more will be next.”
The move was taken in solidarity with the #EndSARS protesters.
The website of the Central bank of Nigeria had earlier on Friday night been taken down but restored.
Anonymous had hacked the Twitter accounts of the National Broadcasting Commission which has in recent time been criticised for its highhandedness and stiff media regulations through its Broadcast Code which increased the fine for hate speech to N5 million
