Anonymous, an international network of hackers who has in recent days been supporting the #ENDSARS Protesters online, has warned Nigerians against asking for money on social media.
Africa News Plus observed that some Nigerians has decided to take advantage of the #ENDSARS movement by jumping on popular threads and requesting for financial supports online, with most dropping their bank account details for possible crediting.
Anonymous tweeted on Monday “We’ve noticed many of you in… Nigeria… are publicly sharing your bank account details across social media. For your own financial safety, we highly advise against such actions. Especially if you are openly sharing such details with alleged hackers.”
Earlier in the day, the group hacked the Nigerian Stock Exchange website, and took over the admin panel as markets opened on Monday.
