Probably taking a cue from popular cyber hackers such as Anonymous, the ‘Naija Cyber Army’ have defaced the official website of Nigeria’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) leaving the following message:
‘Its 2015 Elections And We Are Here again But This Time In A Different Form, APC Claimed They Hacked Into INEC DATABASE But We Own The DATABASE Long Before Now So No Worries No Fear To All nigerians…GO And Cast Your Vote And We Assure You That Your Vote Must Count Because We Are The Kings Of The nigerrian cyber SPACE.
Note: we gat access to other high ranking nigerian government servers, but we are not here for that today!. Inec dont try to rig because we have been watching you day and night for months now but dont be scared we mean no harm cos if you attempt to rig you will pay!! We are the the voice of the youths!!
We also use this medium to advice all political parties: who price go pay. We do not forgive we do not forget expect us!’
INEC also confirmed the cyber incident with the following tweet:
