Anonymous, an online network known for launching cyberattacks against government institutions, has hacked the website of First Bank of Nigeria Limited.
A visit to the bank’s website at 01:30pm showed that it was brought down.
Anonymous, however, said it would restore the website after it “keep it down for some time”.
When our correspondent visited the site again at 03:26pm, it was discovered that the site had been restored.
In a string of tweets, Anonymous confirmed bringing down the bank’s website while alleging, amongst others, that the bank instructed its staff not to join the #EndSARS campaign.
It stated, “Now #ENDSARSOPPRESSION Official website of First Banks Nigeria has been taken #Offline.
“We #Anonymous have taken-down your website in support of #EndSARS
