#EndSARS: Nigerian Government Websites hacked


Collective Anonymous, the dreaded international group of hackers, says it has hacked some websites belonging to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The act is said to be in support of the ongoing #EndSARS protest that has taken over many cities in Nigeria, following calls for the disbandment of notorious police unit, the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) which has been alleged to be involved in abduction, harassment, extortion and murder of innocent victims.

Anonymous did not disclose the identity of websites breached but the Nigerian police suffered a severe breach as hundreds of Nigerian police officers have had their identities and bank accounts compromised as a result of the attack.

Recall that the hackers had earlier warned President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday in the midst of the now global #EndSARS campaign.

The group was responsible for the Tunisian and Egyptian government websites attacks during the Arab Spring and Egyptian revolution in 2011.

In operation condemn Titstorm, the group also shutdown the Australian Government over the Internet filtering legislation in 2010.

Other casualties of their attacks include: Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska; Visa; Mastercard and Paypal for refusing services to Wikileaks.
