The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Nigeria says its engineers are working to restore its hacked website.


The website was hacked in the morning on Saturday, hours after the accreditation of voters started.

In a tweet on its twitter handle the commission said “it is aware of the recent hack of its website and it is currently investigating the incident”.

After the website was hacked, the INEC dropped the content added to the website by the hacker and wrote: “We will be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we are performing some maintenance at the moment. We will be back online shortly! Site should be back up soon”.
