Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Saturday said it has ordered that its website, www.apc.ng be pulled down over alleged activities of suspected hackers.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu in a press conference in Abuja, said the hackers posted unauthorised contents on the website.
He said, “Our attention has just been drawn to the fact that the APC’s official website, apc.com.ng has been hacked with unauthorised content posted on our pages.”
He, however, assured that the breach would be restored soon.
“I have instructed that the site be taken down. Steps are underway to clean it up, strengthen the security, and restore it as soon as possible.
“We won’t allow the desperate people to succeed in their evil plots.”
