#EndSARS: Again, Anonymous Hacks CBN Website

by on October 17, 2020

On Friday night, a decentralised multinational “hacktivist” group “Anonymous” assumed responsibility for taking down the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) website.

Breaking Times checks revealed that the message “500- Internal server error” was displayed on the website. The resource you are searching for has a problem, and it can not be shown.

The glitch caused the site of the apex bank to go on and off intermittently.

“A tweet by one of its affiliates, @loriansynaro, which reads, in part,” #Anonymous #OpNigeria #EndSARS #EndSarsNow, was retweeted by Anonymous. #Offline was taken from the website of the Nigerian central bank. https:/cbn.gov.ng | DOWN TANGO.’

The hackers said the series of attacks on websites operated by the government is to help the widespread demonstrations in Nigeria against police brutality.

A statement released by Ag. Corporate Communications Officer, Osita Nwanisobi, said the website of the country’s apex bank is ‘stable’.
