The All Progressives Congress has denied that the purported APC twitter handle that was hacked on Saturday never belonged to the party.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi said this while reacting to the news.
As he put it via his twitter handle, ” For the upteenth 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.”
It was reported on Saturday how an account linked to the ruling party with the Twitter handle, @APCNigeria was taken over by an alleged hacker.
According to a tweet from the hacker, the account was sold for ‘$2k’.
The hacker also went ahead to post tweets relating to the sale and purchase of bitcoins.
