The hacking group known as Anonymous Syria today attacked, hacked and defaced at 25 Nigerian government websites.  The sites defaced have been posting messages from hackers called SyrianDanger with Twitter handle of @SyrianDanger and SyrianHexor with Twitter handle of @Syr_Hexor.
Most of the sites hacked are related to various ministries of the Government of Nigeria, notably, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Justice,  the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Power, the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Hospital Yaba, the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology being the prominent ones to be hacked.  Though Syria has no direct conflict neither do the Anti-Assad regime sympathisers have any conflict with Nigeria, it seems that the defacements have been carried to make the Syrian cause public and bring world attention to the atrocities being committed  in Syria.  The hacked page of University of Abuja Teaching Hospital gives the following message
