The institution confirmed this in an update on the page on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, saying it now had full control of the account.

“#wearekabarak,” the University updated.

The hacker who claimed to be an IT student at a school in Jakarta, Indonesia had taken over the page posting memes for at least three days.

On Sunday, May 7, the suspected fraudster issued a demand to the institution asking for 500$(Ksh68,250) to surrender the page.

The hacker said the demand was too little for the university not to afford.

“I also have another option, you guys just give me 500$ , and I’ll bring this page back, the offer is cheap for a big university,” he posted on the page.
