Hackers hack the industrial court’s website, leak Edo State contracts details
Anonymous Nigeria has taken over the website of Nigeria’s National Industrial Court and also targeted the official website of Edo State Government.
Hackers had also hacked the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Commission.
On the homepage of the court’s website, the hackers wrote the hastags #OpNigeria #EndSARSProtest #EndSARS #EndSarsNow and #EndPoliceBrutality
In the document seen by The Guardian on Friday, they dumped details of hundreds
of contracts approved by the Edo State Government on Pastebin by Anonymous on Thursday.
The document showed project ID, date of approval, the cost and category of some contracts in 2019 and 2020.
They also included the names of companies to which some contracts were awarded in the leaked documents.
The hackers alleged that they paid some contractors for doing nothing.
In Nigeria, such a situation is rife.
“You got paid for these contracts but never delivered the job,
received billions but spent nothing,” Anonymous said on Twitter.
But the Edo State government has denied the allegations, in fact, it said the documents were fake.
