The adverts, which are in four different languages (English, Hausa, Yoruba and pidgin) will educate Nigerians on the menace of underage gaming in the country.

The NLRC has also called on gaming companies to improve their KYC and consumer vetting; and to also run similar campaigns to discourage gambling by younger Nigerians.
