WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that the group of unidentified individuals had also hacked the websites of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The group in its claim to the development threatened to hack more government websites.
On Friday, they hacked the Twitter handle of the National Broadcasting Commission and the account is still under their control.
The group noted that they support weak against the powerful and stand for justice.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army has declared that it is set to begin its annual exercise “Crocodile Smile” to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace.
This is coming barely eight days #EndSARS protesters stormed streets to demand for the proscription of the controversial police unit, SARS and this protest has escalated to major cities in the country.
