Anonymous, a decentralized international activist/hacktivist collective/movement, has hacked and taken over the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
This happened barely 48 hours after viral audio released by Anonymous supporting the #EndSARS protest, thereby giving the government 72 hours or risked hacking.
The NBC official Twitter account tweeted in support of the protest. Additionally, Anonymous, tweeted with the handle that they are in control of the account.
As at the time of writing this report, the Twitter account is still being controlled by the hackers.
