Rwanda police foil hackers’ attempt to raid bank


A hacking group composed of nationals from three East African countries has been arrested in Rwanda while attempting to breach the systems of a bank.

The Rwanda Investigation Bureau says the hackers planned to steal money from clients’ accounts at Equity Bank, but did not say when the hacking attempt was staged.

The bureau said the hacking group was composed of eight Kenyans, three Rwandans and one Ugandan.

This group was arrested while in the process of hacking into the bank system to steal money from clients’ accounts.
