APC Shuts Down Official Website, Reportedly Hacked With Unauthorised Content Posted On Its Pages
The All Progressives Congress(APC) on Saturday said its official website, apc.com.ng, had been hacked with unauthorised content posted on its pages.
Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC National Publicity Secretary, who disclosed this in a statement, said he had directed for the site to be taken down.
“Our attention has just been drawn to the fact that the APC’s official website, apc.com.ng, has been hacked with unauthorised content posted on our pages.
I have instructed that the site be taken down. Steps are underway to clean it up, strengthen the security and restore it as soon as possible. We won’t allow desperate people to succeed in their evil plots,” the APC spokesman said.
In the heat of the 2015 general elections, the official website of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC was also hacked in what looked like an attempt to post unofficial election results on the site.
