The official NBC Twitter account was said to have been hacked by some unknown individuals who called it self “anonymous”
This became apparent when the agency (National Broadcasting Commission) which hasn’t been tweeting about the EndSARS protest started doing so all of a sudden.
One of the early tweet after the incident was
We are tired of mediocre governance— nbcgovng (@nbcgovng) October 15, 2020
We are tired of being assaulted by men in black with arms
We are tired of the government not hearing our cries#EndPoliceBrutality#EndSWAT#EndSARS
Reform the POLICE FORCE#ANONYMOUS

However, it became very apparent when it tweeted
We #Anonymous have taken over all the NG Official Twitter's Account to support #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY.— nbcgovng (@nbcgovng) October 16, 2020
WE'RE TOGETHER WITH NIGERIANS.

And also “Good morning, great Nigerians. TGIF and it’s also a good day to #ENDSARS and #EndSWAT Which government website(s) would you want us to play with? Drop your suggestions under this tweet. #TwitterDown #NBChacked”
We believe that the agency will be working very hard to regain access to its account.
