On Saturday 28-3-2015 Nigerian Cyber Army hacked into and shut down the electoral commission’s website .

“Strucked by Nigerian Cyber Army,” read the banner at the top of the page, and underneath: “security is just an illusion.”
The Independence Electoral Commission (INEC) said that “It was aware of the hack and investigating it”, although with about 120,000 polling platforms manages and major technological problems with biometric card readers, its resources are stretched.

There was no problem with voting due to the attack on the website

The page displayed a image taken from a newspaper of candidates Muhammadu Buhari and President Goodluck Jonathan as football players and INEC chairman Attahiru Jega as referee warning them against “post match hooliganism”.

“If you attempt to rig, you will pay,” the message says.
