EndSARS: Notorious Hacker, Anonymous, Hacks Nigerian Government Websites
The act is said to be in support of the ongoing #EndSARS protest that has taken over many cities in Nigeria, following calls for the disbandment of notorious police unit, the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) which has been alleged to be involved in abduction, harassment, extortion and murder of innocent victims.
Anonymous did not disclose the identity of websites breached but the Nigerian police suffered a severe breach as hundreds of Nigerian police officers have had their identities and bank accounts compromised as a result of the attack.
