APC disowns hacked Twitter account linked with party


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disowned the @APCNigeria Twitter account that was recently taken over by hackers.

According to a tweet from the hacker, the account was sold for ‘$2k’, and also went ahead to post tweets relating to the sale and purchase of bitcoins.

Speaking on the latest development via his personal Twitter handle, the spokesman of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, said: “For the umpteenth time, @APCNigeria is not the official Twitter handle of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“In several official statements, we have disclaimed that handle. We view this latest development as a case of criminal impersonation.”

Meanwhile, Philip Obin, the manager of the controversial Twitter account, has confirmed that the account was hacked.

Obin, in a tweet on his own private account, said “Account hacked. Efforts to recover it ongoing. Any inconvenience is regretted.”
