International Hacker group, Anonymous on Friday, shutdown websites of Nigerian Government Agencies in solidarity of the EndSARS protest by Nigerian youths calling for an end to Police brutality.
Websites of the EFCC (Economic and Financial Crimes Commission), INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission), Nigeria Police Force, and the CBN (Central Bank of Nigeria) were victims of the attack.
The group also targeted the EFCC’s website on Friday night, while INEC’s N1.47b website was taken down around midnight Friday.
Tweeting from the @nbcgovng’s handle, the group informed the public of its actions.
The website for INEC and CBN has been restored as at reporting time.
Friday night, protesters held a candle light vigil across locations for all victims of Police Brutality.
