The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Pius Anyim, has decried the reported hacking of the website of INEC.

Anyim told reporters at his country home in Ishiagu, Ebonyi on Saturday that he was surprised over the development.

“I am surprised INEC is saying that its server has been hacked when they should have anticipated and prevented it.

“I do not know what it means and portends. INEC should tell Nigerians the implication.”

The SGF said he had a successful accreditation although he received reports of authentication failure in some parts of the state.

He commended the people for their massive turnout for accreditation.

Anyim said that those who attempted to scare prospective voters with explosives had failed, adding that the outcome of the election would be accepted if not manipulated.

Reports have it that INEC’s website was hacked by a group known as Nigeria Cyber Army.
