The National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, has confirmed that its Twitter account has been hacked. This happened barely 48 hours after viral audio released by serial hacker whistle blower group Anonymous, supporting the #EndSARS protest.
Anonymous had given the government 72 hours or risked hacking.
The NBC official Twitter account tweeted randomly in support of the protest and the suspicion of an account 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”
