Edo State Government says leaked documents “fake”

Anonymous Nigeria has taken over the website of Nigeria’s National Industrial Court and also targeted the official website of Edo State Government.

Hackers had also hacked the Twitter account of the National Broadcasting Commission.

On the homepage of the court’s website, the hackers wrote the hastags #OpNigeria #EndSARSProtest #EndSARS #EndSarsNow and #EndPoliceBrutality

In the document seen by The Guardian on Friday, details of hundreds of contract approved by the Edo State Government were dumped on Pastebin by Anonymous on Thursday.

The document showed project ID, date of approval, the cost and category of some of the contracts in 2019 and 2020.

The names of companies to which some of the contracts were awarded were also included in the leaked documents. The hackers alleged that some contractors were paid for doing nothing.

In Nigeria, such a situation is rife.

“You got paid for these contracts but never delivered the job, received billions but spent nothing,” Anonymous said on Twitter.

But the Edo State government has denied the allegations, in fact, it said the documents were fake.

Crusoe Osagie, Edo State governor’s spokesman, in a phone chat with The Guardian on Friday said the documents on the state official websites are for public consumption but said the ones leaked by the hacktivists were “fake”.

“Our website in Edo State is not for hiding documents, it is for putting documents out there for the public. So you don’t need to hack our website to see things that were put there,” Osagie said.

“If you claim you hack our website to get documents that means whatever they are putting out there is fake because our website is not that one we hide documents in,” he added.

Although the Anonymous Wednesday night said it has hacked “multiple” Nigerian Government websites as protests against police brutality, the Edo State government is one of the first two government websites to be exposed.

It also shared a Pastebin document that seemed to contain confidential information on police personnel Wednesday.

The group created a dedicated Twitter for its Nigerian operations on October 12, telling the government to “expect us”. Another handle @AnonyNig is also active in the hacktivism.

Anger over abuses by the police’s notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) erupted onto the streets earlier this month, forcing the government to announce they were scrapping the unit as part of wider police reforms.

The authorities pledged a raft of measures including the release of demonstrators from custody and the setting up, within a week, of an independent body to probe violations.

The government has also acted on a demand to provide psychological evaluation and training to disbanded SARS officials prior to their re-deployment.

But frustration is running high among Nigeria’s youth who face the brunt of abuses as well as a lack of opportunities, and many insist they will keep protesting.

Several hundred people were gathered in Abuja on Wednesday when witnesses said they were attacked.

“A group of boys, maybe 30 of them, 16 to 20 years old, clearly high on drugs, arrived and started destroying our cars,” 28-year-old Esther Jonathan told AFP.

Human rights activist Aisha Yusufu said paying thugs to crack down on protestors was a known tactic in Nigeria.

“This is something they did to us before,” Yusufu told AFP. “They attacked us in 2014 under the watchful eyes of the police, and that is what they have done again in 2020.”

In Ikeja, in Lagos state, several witnesses said that men with machetes and axes attempted to attack demonstrators, but were stopped and handed over to the police.

It is said that over $300billion has been stolen and carted away from Nigeria by the various governments. That is not counting the billions stolen and left in local bank accounts or buried in some tanks somewhere.

Anonymous has done their own parts, lawyers, activists, bloggers, and myself too should take it up from there and do what you can. Get those documents and peruse, see what you can fathom, SERAP has been quiet by the way. Why?

The affected politician should not be the one who will tell us what is fake or not. Unfortunately for them (and fortunately for us) they have likely thrown themselves inside oil by saying those docs are fake. When Anonymous strikes them next time, it will be worse.

The FG never saw it coming , they felt Nigerians have been accustomed to that mediocre lifestyle so whatever the give them they take.
Imagine for weeks they played with ASUU even buhari said they would stop the salaries of lecturers not enrolled in the IPPIS.
Now everything is going south they want to accept the UTAS ASUU came up with, what stopped them from accepting it before now undecided
Nigerians have suffered for too long , the government pushed their luck and if care's not taken this whole could escalate into something terrible.

If ASUU wants to show solidarity ,they must not end this strike until federal government pays them in full.

Humn! The government have so much bastardized the psych of the youth to accept all manners of ill-governance as standard.Now the youth are proving that the analogue have to give way to the digital age though going to the extreme.This should serve as a warning to those in authority.

Both PDP and APC have failed the country.. More reason why the protests won't end anytime soon. Paying contractors for doing nothing. These politicians are evil. U award contracts to your company yet you don't do any work.
