Buhari’s Private Information Was Hacked In 2015; Video Intimidating Nigerian Voters Posted Online- Cambridge Analytica Whistle Blower Reveals

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie has today alleged that scandal-hit Cambrige Analytica’s parent company SCL was involved in a project in Nigeria in 2015 which involved hacking the private information of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was then running for president.

According to Daily Mail, he also alleged that the company was involved in the distribution of kompromat to intimidate Nigerian voters.

He told British MPs: ‘The company utilised the services of an Israeli private intelligence firm, Black Cube

‘Black Cube on the Nigeria project was engaged to hack the now-president Buhari to get access to his medical records and private emails.

‘AIQ worked on that project. AIQ was handed material in Nigeria from Cambridge Analytica to distribute online. 

‘That’s distribution of kompromat and of incredibly threatening and violent video content which I’ve passed on to the committee.

‘The videos that AIQ distributed in Nigeria with the sole intent of intimidating voters included content where people were being dismembered, where people were having their throats cut and bled to death in a ditch, they were being burned alive.

‘There were incredibly anti-Islamic and threatening messages portraying Muslims as violent.’

However, in a statement issued after the hearing, Black Cube denied ever operating in Nigeria.

The company said: ‘Black Cube has never operated in Nigeria nor has it worked on any project connected to Nigeria, and none of its employees have ever set foot in Nigeria. 

‘Black Cube will investigate this claim on a pro bono basis, and will reveal the truth and the motive behind Wylie’s defamatory lie.’

They also threatened to sue Mr Wylie.

‘We categorically declare that neither Black Cube, nor any of its affiliates and subsidiaries, have ever worked for, or engaged with, SCL, Cambridge Analytica, or any of their affiliates and subsidiaries.
