Hackers collective Anonymous Wednesday night said that it has hacked “multiple” Nigerian Government websites as protests against police brutality in the country continue.
“Anonymous hacked multiple government websites in solidarity with #EndSARS protestors and retribution for violence by police,” the group tweeted late on Wednesday.
The group created a dedicated Twitter for its Nigerian operations on October 12, telling the government to “expect us”.
The group has also shared a video in which they gave the Nigerian government 72 hours to stop the police brutality against Nigerians or face multiple attacks.
Although, Anonymous did not say which websites it has hacked, the Nigerian police’s website was down as at 12:21 am on Thursday.
In the last seven days, there have been sustained calls for the reformation of the Nigeria Police Force and reactions have been massive across the world, with some of the most popular individuals adding their voices to the millions of Nigerians involved in the protest.
