The popular Anoncentral, Anonymous hackers have taken over the Twitter account of the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission, NBC.

 The account was first hijacked late Thursday night by the notorious cyber group. A photo was shared with the logo of the NBC attached to it. The photo was captioned, “#EndSARS, #EndSWAT and #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY.”

In the message, it said:

“No one deserves this brutality. What happened to people could also happen to our families. We are sorry for keeping mute and being anonymous.”

Another post, on Friday morning, read:

“We anonymous group of hackers will continue supporting the citizens of Nigeria. Expect us. #Hacked.”

The hackers said in another post:

“We Anonymous have taken over all the NG official Twitter’s account to support #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY. We are together with Nigerians. Expected (the) unexpected. #OpNigeria #Hacked.”

The hackers went ahead to ask Nigerians to suggest government websites “you want us to play with”.

“Good morning, great Nigerians. TGIF and it’s also a good day to #ENDSARS and #EndSWAT,” they said, before asking: “Which government website(s) would you want us to play with? Drop your suggestions under this tweet.”

As of 9:40 am on Friday, the NBC website is still active as configured, no other government platform that has suffered such a cyber-attack.
