The Federal Republic of Nigeria is a country located in Western Africa. It is bordered by Cameroon to the east, Benin to the west, and Niger to the north, and its southern coastline borders the Atlantic Ocean.
Because of lax regulations, and gaming being a relatively young sector in the country, Nigeria (among other African countries) has become somewhat notable for its pirated versions of the Grand Theft Auto series. Also notably, the Android ports of Grand Theft Auto have become popular due to Nigeria's heavy use of mobile phones.
