#EndSARS: NBC Twitter account hacked by Anonymous group

Amidst the ongoing #EndSARS nationwide protest in Nigeria, social media users have been thrown into a frenzy after the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC announced that its Twitter account was hacked.

This incident occured barely 48 hours after viral audio released by an ‘anonymous’ supported the #EndSARS protest, thereby giving the government 72 hours or risked hacking.

Nigerians began to ‘smell something fishy’ after the NBC official Twitter account tweeted randomly in support of the protest. The suspicion was confirmed when it tweeted “Good morning, great Nigerians.

TGIF and it’s also a good day to #ENDSARS  and #EndSWAT Which government website(s) would you want us to play with? Drop your suggestions under this tweet. #TwitterDown #NBChacked”.

It further tweeted that “we anonymous are out to expose government’s secret and dirty files”.

Twitter users have been dropping suggestions in response to the request on the NBC Twitter handle.
