Anonymous, online network responsible for launching cyber attacks against government institutions, has hacked and shut down the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria, www.cbn.gov.ng
The incident happens few hours after some government agencies including the National Broadcasting Commission were hacked in solidarity with the nationwide protest against police brutality by Nigerians.
The hackers confirmed the attack on the Nigerian government banker in a post on its Twitter account on Friday night, October 16. See the tweet below:
Recall that the minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, defended the stiff media regulations through its Broadcast Code which increased the fine for hate speech to N5 million.
