The All Progressives Congress, APC, has directed that its official website, apc.com.ng, be brought down.
The order was given because the site has been hacked.
According to the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the move would save the site from being taken over by “desperate people” and their “evil plots.”
His words: “Our attention has just been drawn to the fact that the APC’s official website, apc.com.ng, has been hacked with unauthorised content posted on our pages.
“I have instructed that the site be taken down. Steps are underway to clean it up, strengthen the security and restore it as soon as possible.
“We won’t allow desperate people to succeed in their evil plots.”
