The Anonymous group, an online network known for launching cyber attacks against government institutions, has claimed responsibility for bringing down the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria. As I type, CBN website – https://www.cbn.gov.ng/ – is offline. I am told that market data is also not accessible. Largely, the central bank of Nigeria is cut-out of the global internet.
The move was taken in solidarity with the #EndSARS protesters.
This is a developing story.
