Anonymous hackers have hacked the official Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
The group known for hacking repressive government’s website earlier announced its decision to attack Nigerian government agencies’ websites in solidarity with the protesters clamoring for the reformation of the police.
The group of anonymous hackers has carried out similar coordinated attacks in the United States, Israel, Tunisia, Uganda, and some other countries.
Its motto is simply “we are anonymous”, referring to its large number of individuals.
Subsequently, NBC has confirmed that its Twitter account has been hacked, stating that they are working on the retrieval.
This happened barely 48 hours after viral audio released by an ‘anonymous’ supported the #EndSARS protest, thereby giving the government 72 hours or risked hacking.
