EXPOSED: DIA Buys Equipment To Spy On Nigerians Calls/Text Messages

A report by CitizensLab, an interdisciplinary laboratory based at the University of Toronto in Canada, has revealed that the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) bought an equipment to spy on calls and text messages by Nigerians.

CitizensLab in its latest report “Running in Circles: Uncovering the Clients of Cyberespionage Firm Circles,” disclosed that the DIA, which reports directly to President Muhammadu Buhari, may have been spying on calls and text messages of Nigerians.

The DIA and another body in Nigeria had acquired Signaling System 7 (SS7), from Circles, a surveillance firm that reportedly exploits weaknesses in the global mobile phone system to spy on calls, texts, and the location of phones, according to the report published by TheCable.

The report read: “Our scanning identified two Circles systems in Nigeria. One system may be operated by the same entity as one of the Nigerian customers of the FinFisher spyware that we detected in December 2014.
