Fake Anonymous Hacker Did Not Credit Airtel Subscribers, Airtel Compensate Customers For Service Disruption
Airtel Africa on Monday compensated customers by sharing free N1,000 airtime following Friday’s service disruption.
In a text message forwarded to customers, the telecommunication company says “Dear customer, we apologise for the recent service disruption experienced on October 16. “Normal service has been restored and your line will be credited with five minutes of on-net calls and 100MB of data both valid for one day.”
This was before the fake anonymous hacker claimed it has hacked the system of the company and credited all Airtel subscribers N1,000.
Most Airtel users that did not know the reason for the unusual gesture took to their social media to validate the fake anonymous claim, a claim the real anonymous has refuted and warned people to be careful of sharing their vital information with criminals parading as anonymous.
Nigerian youths continue to demand anonymous support as they seek an end to police brutality, harassment and dehumanisation of innocent citizens. The youths have vowed to continue protesting until the demanded reform and changes are effectively implemented, an unusual demand in a nation known for its lackadaisical and nonchalant attitude towards change and reform.
