“Our Website Was Hacked’, APC Claims After Plagiarism Allegations

The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has said its campaign website was hacked by unknown hackers.

This came after an article, with the title “our first priority is keeping America safe and secure.” was seen on the website, which sparked allegations of plagiarism.

After a lot of condemnation, the party has now come out to say the content was posted on the site by unknown hackers.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, which was released via twitter, the party said: “Our attention has just been drawn to the fact that the APC’s official campaign website, apc.com.ng has been hacked with unauthorised content posted on our pages. 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.”

In 2018, the ruling party also reported that its twitter account had been hacked after allegations that it was sold to a foreigner.

The website is currently under maintenance.
