Anonymous Declare War on INEC Over Corruption and Election Rigging

A group of anonymous hackers has declared war on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Nigeria, accusing the commission of corruption and election rigging. Anonymous is a decentralized international activist and hacktivist movement that is widely known for its various cyber attacks against several governments, government institutions, agencies, corporations, and political and religious sects.

Anonymous is composed of an unknown number of people who are often associated with the online hacktivist community. The group is known for its various cyber attacks on government institutions, corporate websites and other organizations. It has been involved in cyber protests and hacktivism since 2008 and has been linked to several high-profile cyber attacks such as the distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack on the Church of Scientology in 2008.

The group has been vocal in its criticism of governments and corporations around the world. In the past it has targeted oppressive regimes in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as corporations such as Sony, Apple and PayPal. They have also been vocal in their criticism of internet censorship and surveillance.

The Hacktivists have recently focused on the Nigerian Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), accusing it of corruption and election rigging. The group has vowed to expose the corruption in INEC and has promised launched a series of cyber attacks against the INEC's website in an attempt to disclose the corruption in the ongoing election.

Anonymous took to their social media handles to express shock over the level of corruption they have seen on the INEC websites including upload of blank papers as election results. In their words, the hacktivists say they have never seen the level of corruption in Nigeria anywhere in the world.

"We have seen a lot of shits on the website of the Nigerian electoral commission, empty blank papers uploaded as election results. This is shameful, this is very shameful. We've never seen corruption scandal like this before now, this is hight corruption. WTF!!! We knew the commission was corrupt but we never knew it was this massive! This is terrible," the organization said.

Anonymous added that it will expose all the secrets of the Nigerian corruption associated with the ongoing election. It accuses the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Ahmed Tinubu, of conniving with IPOB leader, Simon Ekpa, to cause unrest in the South Eastern region of Nigeria through insecurity; and vowed to ensure it forwards the information to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

"To you who was involved with this? We shall expose you from the very beginning unto the end. We are coming for you Mr. Ahmed T.! We told you clearly, your deal with Ekpa shall be your end. Paying Ekpa over $2.7 million to help sabotage and kill his own people would bring your very end and doom. Your son Seyi would not not go unpunished.

All transactions records aand evidence are in our posssession and would be submitted to the ICC. We are ahead of you and this is the fact. You all came for the Anonymous, but you came for the wrong men," the group boasted.

It is unclear what the long term impact of Anonymous' actions will be on the Nigerian electoral process or when/how they want to begin their actions against INEC, however, this is not the first time the group has gotten itself involved in political issues in Nigeria.

Anonymous has been active in Nigeria since 2011, when they launched several distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against government websites in response to reports of corruption and human rights abuses in the country. The group had also attacked several Nigerian government website in 2020 during EndSARS protest.

Nigeria is currently conducting its general election across the country. The contestants for the country's presidential seats are Mr. Peter Obi or Labour Party (LP), Ahmed Tinubu of All Progressive Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar of People's Democratic Party (PDP) and Rabiu Kwankwaso of New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

There are reports of corruption, rigging and violence orchestrated by the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC). The announcement of the presidential election results is ongoing at INEC collation centers across the country, but many Nigerians seem not to agree with the outcome of the result. Anonymous revelation may be a source of evidence among other images and videos distributed by the opposition parties.
