Hackers collective Anonymous has just hacked the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Commission in an apparent support for the ongoing #EndSARS protests.
“We #Anonymous will continue supporting Nigerians,” the hackers said in a message posted to NBC’s handle.
Over the past 10 days, #ENDSARS protesters have been filing out across Nigerian streets, demanding an end to police brutality and oppression. They insist that only a total reform of the police would take them off the streets.
The banning of the notorious SARS by the inspector of police has not been enough to calm the army of agitators who now line the streets of major cities in Nigeria.
It is not yet known how the present intervention by Anonymous would help the #ENDSARS protests but many observers on social media are already excited that the group would help push the message of the agitators to far ends of the earth.
