The official Twitter account of Nigeria’s ruling political party, All Progressives Congress (APC) (@APCNigeria) has been hacked by unknown persons.
The Twitter name and picture has been changed to Justin Sun, founder of TRON, a crypto network. The background image now states “TRON DECENTRALIZE THE WEB”.
The account tweeted some messages around 3 p.m. today promising to give followers 1,000 Bitcoin and 5,000 Ethereum.
Reports show that the party is aware of this development and working to fix it.
Philip Obin, a chairmanship candidate with the party, tweeted about the ongoing efforts to recover the account.
Account hacked. Efforts to recover it ongoing. Any inconvenience is regretted.
