Anonymous, a group of international activists known for launching cyber attacks on government institutions, has hacked the websites of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The group also hacked the website of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The group claimed responsibility for the cyber attacks on the two Nigerian institutions in tweet.
It had also claimed for previous attacks on other institutions like the National Broadcasting Commission and the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The tweet read, “Official website of @officialEFCC has been taken down in support of #EndSARSProtest. CHECK HOST : https://check-host.net/check-report/df89d3bk838 TARGET : https://efccnigeria.org/efcc/ You should have expected us! #EndCorruptionInNigeria.
The cyber attacks followed days of EndSARS street protests across the country over police brutally.
The protests have seen major highways blocked by protesting citizens in major cities like Lagos and Abuja.
