DANGEROUS video game “Doom” has been removed from the iTunes store in Nigeria due to its “offensive” content.
The video game has been on the store since the early hours of Saturday (local time) and the Nigerian government has decided to ban the game.
“I am very concerned about the video game ‘Dangers’, which has been linked to terrorism and is now being banned from sale in Nigeria,” Minister of Information and Broadcasting Dr. Olufemi Adibo said.
Adibo added that the video games are also linked to other crimes, such as drugs, murder and slavery.
An employee at a game store in the capital, Abuja, told TechRadars Nigeria that the game has already been banned in Nigeria, as well as in neighbouring Chad and Niger.
“[The game] is a violent game, which should not be played by young people.
It also has a lot of racist themes,” he said.”
This is not the first time we have banned a video game from the market, but this is the first one we have taken a stance against because it is linked to Boko Haram,” he added.”
We have banned the video from sale and have asked the retailers to remove the game from their stores.”
The video has been featured on multiple platforms and is widely viewed on YouTube and Facebook.
The game features players using weapons to defeat enemies.
The game has previously been banned on the iTunes Store for a series of violations including sexual content, nudity, and drug use.
Nigeria’s National Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CVPV) on Saturday ordered a ban on the game, calling the game “very offensive” and saying it is “dangerous” to children.
“The CVPV is concerned about this video game because it contains violent images, images of children, and sexual content.
This is very dangerous and must be removed from our store immediately,” the commission said.
The CvpV has asked online video game retailers to take down the game immediately.
CVPVs spokesperson, Mabengo Mabango, told The Associated Press that he is not sure how long the video has remained on the App Store.
According to the CVPVs website, the game is based on the real-time strategy game “The Conquerors” and features players building a nation using the real world as its battlefield.
While there is no evidence that the book “Dangers” was linked to the attack, the CvpVs website has a link to a video on YouTube that depicts a man reading a book titled “The New American Century”.
The CVS website also includes a disclaimer that it does not endorse the book.
Meanwhile, the National Commission on Human Rights (NCHR) said on Saturday that the “Dangerously” video game was banned by the Nigerian authorities because of its “violent content” and “presents a threat to Nigeria’s national security.”
“This video game violates Nigeria’s constitution and laws and is dangerous for children and youths because it portrays violence against women and men,” the NCHR said in a statement.
On Saturday, the video “Doms” was also banned in the country, according to the NCPHR.
In addition to the “dangerously violent” video games, the Nigerian Government also banned the movie “A Day of Rage” for depicting violence against girls and women.
The NCPH said the movie is considered a “crime against nature,” which makes it a violation of the National Anti-Violence Act.
Another popular game, “Eagle’s Eye”, was banned in July after it depicted the sexual assault of a child in a video.
Last week, the country’s Minister of Communication and Information, Abdirahmani Buhari, ordered the cancellation of the “Eagles Eye” video due to it being linked to child abuse.
