Website of Nigeria’s Ministry of Police Affairs Hacked and Defaced


Nigeria’s Ministry of Police Affairs targeted by hackers

The official website of Nigeria’s Ministry of Police Affairs (policeaffairs.gov.ng) has been breached and defaced by hackers of the Nigerian Cyber Army.

The attack took place on Sunday, TechnHackPK reported. The defacement page has been removed, but the website still hasn’t been restored.

The cyberattack has been launched in protest against the country’s government and the police.

“Every offence should have a fair punishment. People have committed greater offences and nothing was done to them. Police officers collecting bribes only confirms how corrupt our society has become,” the hackers said in a message posted on the defaced site.

They added, “It is also a sign of a failed government. If these officers are well remunerated, I don’t see any reason why they would resort to road-side extortion.”

A mirror of the defacement is available on zone-h.org.
