The website of First Bank of Nigeria Limited, has been hacked. 

The old generation bank's website was hacked by 'Anonymous', an online network known for launching cyberattacks against government institutions.

As of the time the bank's website was visited around 1:30pm, it indicated that same had been brought down completely.

Anonymous in a string of tweets, confirmed pulling down the website, just as it alleged that First Bank of Nigeria Limited had effected deductions from customers' accounts who had given support to the #EndSARS campaign.

Anonymous said, “Now #ENDSARSOPPRESSION Official website of First Banks Nigeria has been taken #Offline. You remove money from users because they support #EndSARS.

“We #Anonymous have taken-down your website in support of #EndSARS

“You will pay for your actions. you should have expected us!

“Enjoy your server taken down. no money is gone.”

Anonymous, added that it would restore the website after it “keep it down for some time”.

In its swift reaction, the old generation bank, while tweeting declared that, “We wish to state very clearly that First Bank has not banned any staff from joining the protests and will never do so.

“We have continued to lend our voice to end all forms of brutality including Police, Rape and domestic violence.

“Our position remains that deep-rooted Reforms are a fundamental solution we must embrace.”

Government institutions' website brought down in the past by Anonymous includes that of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Central bank of Nigeria (CBN). 

They were however restored.

It would be recalled that the #EndSARS protests have been taking place across major cities in the country with youths demanding an end to police brutality and killings.
