Hackers Block Fashola’s $78m Website, Twitter Accounts

Former Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, on Saturday raised alarm on web attacks on his website http://brfashola.org/ and twitter account @tundefashola.

When DAILY POST checked the pages Saturday afternoon, the words on them all appeared in what looked Japanese.

Confirming the development, Fashola’s former Special Adviser on Media, Hakeem Bello on Saturday, said that the twitter account must have been compromised on Friday.

According to him, members of the public, who follow the former Governor, started calling to draw attention to the strange tweets in the early hours of Saturday.

Recently, Fashola dissociated himself from a Facebook scam, whereby some unscrupulous persons use his photographs and ascribe fictitious statements to him on fake Facebook accounts aimed at defrauding innocent people.
