There is an allegation of compromise of Access Bank leading to unauthorised disclosure of over 2000 customer information.
The hacker posted a video explaining the compromise and "unknowingly" revealed his identity in the process. His name as seen on his laptop is Ihebuzo Chris pic.twitter.com/jfWrxledju

LMAO. His full name (Ihebuzo Chris) is on the screen
My guess is that this guy didn’t hack anything
All I can see from this video is someone waving some sheets of A4 paper with access bank’s logo and a couple of names. Sprinkled with some poorly imitated foreign accent 😂😂 https://t.co/mIj0iLn4lj
