Earlier today, popular international ‘hacktivist’ group, Anonymous hacked the official Twitter handle of the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC). Using NBC official Twitter handle, they announced they have hacked the handle by tweeting “We #Anonymous have taken over all the NG Official Twitter’s Account to support #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY.” The group had earlier issued a 72-hour ultimatum to Federal Government of Nigeria to address the demands of the #EndSARS protesters. Before now, the group has shown support for the protesting Nigerians by hacking several government databases, including one which contains names and contacts of operatives of the now-defunct Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS).
WE'RE TOGETHER WITH NIGERIANS.
