Governor Ambode

Trouble looms in Lagos State as some terrorists whose real identities are yet to be known have hijacked the website of the Lagos State government,, and using the platform, insulted and accused Nigerian government, United States and Israel as state sponsors of terrorism across the world.

There is no doubt that these hackers are using the platform to retaliate for the death of hundreds of the Shiite Islamic Sect who were shut dead and their leader severely injured by the Nigerian army in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Soldiers in the convoy of the Chief of Army staff, Lt Gen. Buratai had last weekend open fire on the members of the Islamic group leading to the death of the son and wife of their leader.

The hackers through the website of the Lagos State Government released a message accusing the Nigerian government, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and United States of America as being the state sponsors of terrorism. The message reads, “In the Name Of GOD. Message to Nigeria Government and State Sponsors of Ter­rorism (USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar):
