National Industrial court website hacked
The website of Nigeria’s National Industrial Court has been hacked as well as the official website of Edo State Government, according to report.
Report states that the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Commission has also been hacked.
Base on the report, the hackers wrote on the homepage of the court’s website #OpNigeria #EndSARSProtest #EndSARS #EndSarsNow and #EndPoliceBrutality
In the document seen by reporters on Friday, details of hundreds of contract approved by the Edo State Government were dumped on Paste bin by Anonymous on Thursday.
The document showed project ID, date of approval, the cost and category of some of the contracts in 2019 and 2020.
An anonymous tweet said: “You got paid for these contracts but never delivered the job, received billions but spent nothing.”
But the Edo State government has denied the allegations stating that the documents were fake.
Crusoe Osagie, Edo State governor’s spokesman said the documents on the state official websites are for public consumption but said the ones leaked by the hacktivists were “fake”.
He said “Our website in Edo State is not for hiding documents; it is for putting documents out there for the public. So you don’t need to hack our website to see things that were put there.
“If you claim you hack our website to get documents that means whatever they are putting out there is fake because our website is not that one we hide documents in.”
