The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has denied that its website was attacked by a group of hackers Anonymous on Friday.
“Contrary to the claims in the social media alleging that the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria ww.cbn.gov.ng has been breached by malicious persons, we wish to state that our website is secure,” CBN spokesman Osita Nwanisobi said in a statement.
“We wish to assure the Nigerian public and indeed all other stakeholders that the CBN website is adequately protected and that there is no cause for alarm.”
The CBN’s rebuttal comes a day after a group of hackers Anonymous claimed they have attacked the Nigerian apex bank’s website.
While the CBN claims its website is secure, the cyberattack credited to Anonymous made the CBN website go on and off intermittently on Friday.
Hackers collective Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack in the continuation of the takedown of Nigerian Government-owned social media accounts and websites.
The CBN statement did not, however, explain why the website went on and off intermittently.
