An online network known for launching cyberattacks against government institutions, Anonymous has hacked the website of First Bank of Nigeria Limited.
Anonymous on Twitter confirmed bringing down the bank’s website for deducting money from the accounts of customers who are in support of the #EndSARS campaign.
It stated, “Now #ENDSARSOPPRESSION Official website of First Banks Nigeria has been taken #Offline. You remove money from users because they support #EndSARS.
“We #Anonymous have taken-down your website in support of #EndSARS
“You will pay for your actions. you should have expected us!
“Enjoy your server taken down. no money is gone.”
Anonymous, however, said it would restore the website after it “keep it down for some time”.
Reacting, First Bank also tweeted, “We wish to state very clearly that First Bank has not banned any staff from joining the protests and will never do so.
“We have continued to lend our voice to end all forms of brutality including Police, Rape and domestic violence.
“Our position remains that deep-rooted Reforms are a fundamental solution we must embrace.”
