The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) website was hacked into this morning by a group named NaijaCyberHactivists.
The hack took place at about 11:50am (GMT +1) and the culprrits left a message which reads:
Dear Traitors – NLC & TUC,
Ten days ago, you sold your souls to the evil that has kept our country down.
Our people rose in their numbers against the oppression of the looting class and you pretended to join the cause.
All we needed from you was to keep the work places closed while we took over the streets but you made yourselves the pawn.
With the lootocrats you connived and delivered a blow to our street struggle. You deprived the people of the greatest opportunity and now you deserve our curse.
The struggle lives on, we have only taken it off the Park/
Our spirit rages on, yours may dwell with their evil in the dark//
We will fight to the last. We will fight with our body, our minds and soul/
This is nothing but a reminder that the war for a new Nigeria will be fought across all fronts and a common goal//
We will do everything for a just and egalitarian society.
You Labour will not labour in vain because you will reap the fruits from the seeds of shame you have sown.
You will harvest shame and dishonour for selling a nation’s destiny over a morsel of appointments.
We are coming for you, this is just the beginning. We will not tire, we will not falter, we will not fail.
There is room for your redemption but you will never be redeemed until forever and a day more.
THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!
Before the hackers took over the site, this is what the NLC website looked like this morning:
UPDATE: We have just confirmed that the Central Bank of Nigeria website has also been hacked – by the same group.
