The website of popular Feminist group, Feminist Coalition has allegedly suffered a cyberattack and inaccessible to Nigerians. 

When accessed with a VPN, the website cannot be reached. But when a user uses a non-Nigerian VPN, the site becomes accessible. 

The Feminist Coalition is a not-for-profit organisation that was created in July 2020 with a mission to champion equality for women in Nigerian society. 

The group shot into limelight during the EndSARS protests against police brutality, by providing medical assistance, food and legal aid to protesters.

During the height of the protests, some of its members complained of receiving threats. 

On October 26, an Islamic Scholar, Malam Lawal Gusau lodged a complaint against the Feminist Coalition to the Department of State Services for the role it played in the recent EndSARS protest.

The scholar accused the group of being the brain of protests and alleged that their support caused the unrest caused by the protests. 

Gusau filed the petition to President Muhammadu Buhari, the British High Commission, the African Union, the United Nations and the United States Government.

Feyikemi Abudu, one of the prominent members of the group through her social media on Thursday complained about the suspected hack.

She said, “Right now, most people using Nigerian networks can’t ccess the Feminist Co website without using a VPN.

Perhaps you can guess why because I don’t really grab. What can they possibly gain from this?
