The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami, who disclosed this said over 6.9 million attacks were recorded on elections day alone.

He stated that with the sophisticated infrastructure on ground with different agencies charged with the responsibility of protecting the nation’s cyberspace, the attacks were successfully blocked.
