The National Broadcasting Commission,
NBC, has confirmed that its Twitter
account has been hacked, stating that
they are working on the retrieval.
This happened barely 48 hours after viral
audio released by an ‘anonymous’
supported the #EndSARS protest, thereby
giving the government 72 hours or risked
The NBC official Twitter account tweeted
randomly in support of the protest and the suspicion of an account was confirmed when it tweeted “Good
morning, great Nigerians. TGIF and it’s
also a good day to #ENDSARS and #EndSWAT. Which government website(s) would you want us to play with? Drop
your suggestions under this tweet.
#Twitter Down #NBChacked”
It further tweeted that “we anonymous
are out to expose government’s secret
and dirty files”.
Twitter users have been dropping
suggestions in response to the request on
the NBC Twitter handle.
