The Instagram account of Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has been restored after it was hacked Monday morning.
The social media page, which had over 4.2 million followers, was hacked shortly after Zari wished her daughter, Latiffah Dangote, a happy third birthday.
Unconfirmed reports said hackers, responsible for the cyber attack, demanded Ksh400, 000 from Zari Hassan, and when she refused to give in to their demands, they removed all her pictures from the page, and barred her from accessing it.
However, at 2:55pm Monday, the mother-of-five’s Instagram page was up and running, with all the 1, 570 pictures intact.
It remains unknown what Zari Hassan did to repossess her social media page, though pundits suspect she involved Instagram support system.
