Bet9ja, the leading gambling company in Nigeria has been hacked by hackers.
A visit to the betting company’s website as at the time of writing this post by naijamill saw a notice on the site which reads:
Just like so many market-leading global organisations, Bet9ja recently became a victim of a sophisticated criminal cyber-attack, which is restricting your access to our platform.
We take this matter extremely seriously. Our priority is protecting our customers and you have our assurances that your accounts and all your funds are safe.
We appreciate your patience and understanding at this difficult time.
We will be back stronger as soon as is technically possible, rewarding you with a truly sensational bonanza of promotions.
Meanwhile the Federal Government of Nigeria through the National Lottery Commission has commiserated with the betting company and assured all Nigerians that their fund is safe.
According to reports by Punch Newspaper, suspected Russian hackers have begun to target Nigerian companies websites; which unfortunately bet9ja became the first victim.
