Hacking in Nigeria has taken a new toll as Nigerian celebrities are now the latest target. Hackers claim to have access to the Facebook and Twitter accounts of Flavour, Tuface, Whizkid, Banky W, D’banj, Don Jazzy and at least 24 other Nigerian celebrities.
At about 9:29pm on Sunday, the Twitter account of popular Nigerian music star, Flavour Nabania was hacked with a message that reads:
Hacked account. Celebs beware. You’re all a target!
At the time of writing this article, the Twitter account of Flavour had been suspended by Twitter.
Hopefully, Twitter will be quick to restore the accounts to their original state before any more damage is done.
