Talking to fossBytes, a member of Ghost Squad Hackers collective said that they are hacking the government websites to protest against this issue which is being ignored by the mainstream media. “Ethiopian Government is killing students for opposing the ‘master plan’ to expand the main city Addis Ababa, and as a hacker we deface .gov sites but no one is giving attention. So we start again,” the hacker told us.
The hacking group has blamed that Ethiopian government has killed university students. “They have killed more than 100+ university students and we will never forgive them,” the Ghost Squad Hackers said.
The hacking group claims to be working with Anonymous Ethiopia.
When we asked about their demands, the group told, “And our demands are that the Ethiopian government stops killing oromian students and others for opposing the master plan. We need the government to stop this madness or we will hack more sites.”
