Anonymous an hacktivist group, has reportedly hacked database of the Nigerian police, revealed their details, and issued president Buhari a 72hours ultimatum to grant the requests of #EndSARS protesters or face consequences.
The Anonymous group also claimed to have hacked several Government websites as protests against police brutality in Nigeria.
This is coming in the wake of ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country against the SARS/SWAT tactical unit of the Nigerian Police Force over its brutality, illegal arrest, extortion, extra-judicial killings, among others.
Anonymous had created a dedicated Twitter handle for its Nigerian operations on October 5, 2020, warning President Muhammadu Buhari to heed the demands of the protesters.
Last night, October 15, Anonymous revealed that it has successfully hacked multiple government websites in solidarity with Nigerians for the violence of the police against protesters.
“Anonymous hacks multiple government websites in solidarity with #EndSARS protestors and retribution for violence by police,” the group tweeted.
Although, they did not specify which websites were hacked, the Nigerian police’s website was down as at 12:21 am on Thursday.
