Kon10dr, a Nigerian esports organisation, has stated that its in-person competition, the Kon10dr Esports Championship (KEC), slated for December 27-29, will be moved to the virtual arena.

The organisation made the announcement in a press release, which stated: “The work we do at Kon10dr has always been focused on what is best for the gamer as we strive to bring them the very best of experiences, which is why it is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of the upcoming second edition of the Kon10dr Esports Championship (KEC) LAN event.”

“The event is now slated to air live on our YouTube channel on the 27 to 29 December as a virtual event.”

According to the organisation, the move is being made due to safety concerns as Nigeria prepares for its 2023 General Elections “Unfortunately, this is owing to safety concerns that have arisen as the country approaches its 2023 General Elections.”

“It saddens us at Kon10dr to have to do this, but the safety of our gamers, guests, and fans is paramount. As a result, we will assess the security situation and share further details with the community as we go along.”
