#EndSARS: Anonymous hacks National Broadcasting Commission’s Twitter account, vows to expose the government


Anonymous, the collective hackers, hacked the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Commission in an apparent support for the ongoing #EndSARS protests on Friday.

“We #Anonymous will continue supporting Nigerians,” the hackers said in a message posted on the NBC’s handle.

Protests broke out in different cities in Nigeria to demand an end to the rogue Special Anti-Robbery Squad, accused of extrajudicial killings, kidnappings, extortion and intimidation. Protesters, who have been on the streets for over a week now, have also called for police reform.

The National Broadcasting Commission is the broadcast regulator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Commission, which was set up on August 24, 1992, regulates and controls the broadcasting industry in Nigeria.

Anonymous had earlier in the week tweeted in support of the #EndSARS movement, requesting the Government of Nigeria to heed to the requests of the country’s youth.
