The website of Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, and that of Amuwo Odofin Local in Lagos State, were attacked on Friday.
The hacker, who tweets from @LiteMods, claimed responsibilities for the attack on both websites in support of protests against police brutality in Nigeria.
The hacker also threatened to hack the website of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“Nigerian government, we will not allow this corruption,” the hacker tweeted late on Friday. “We will not allow this police brutality. Your websites of @officialEFCC have been taken-down so far by my attacks and more will be next.”
