Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Independent National Electoral Commission Amuwo Odofin Local in Lagos State websites were attacked on Friday.
The latest attack was carried out by a hacker, who tweets from @LiteMods.
@LiteMods claimed responsibilities for the attack on the three Nigerian websites in defense of the protests against police brutality in Nigeria.
“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.”
#Endsars protest which broke out in Nigeria last-week has garnered various supporters and donations across the world.
The protest is against police brutality, with thousands of Nigerian youth calling for the scrapping of a Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a police unit that has been accused of committing crimes including murder.
