Momo Challenge Is A Suicide Game – Experts Warn After 2 Deaths In Colombia & Near Death Experience In UK

A UK based mother is now warning all parents to watch out for  the viral “Momo Challenge” that recently surfaced on the social media.

For those new to this end time trend, Momo Challenge is game played via YouTube, Facebook and Whatsapp.

It encourages players especially young kids to harm themselves.

The main character of the game is a scary looking creature with big bug-like eyes and dark hair.

A mother based in Edinburgh said her 8-year-old son is now living in constant fear since the scary avatar of the game’s main character popped up on YouTube while watching other videos.

The momo character reportedly told him to go to the kitchen drawer and take a knife to kill himself.

The same character is responsible for the deaths of a 16-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl who killed themselves in Colombia in 2018.

The character was created by Link Factory, a Japanese special effects firm.

The original intention of the creator was not to use the creepy character to scare kids, sadly, some faceless elements are using it to induce suicide.

All parents should keep a good eye on their kids activities online.

Prevention they say is better than cure.

      That was how I used to say suicide bombing can never happen in nigeria until boko haram proved me wrong. A child is a child irrespective of race or colour. The devil has different packages for everyone through the power of social media. MONITOR YOUR CHILDREN AND AVOID COSTLY ASSUMPTIONS SO YOU CAN AVOID STORIES THAT TOUCH THE HEART

    Arrant nonsense. If this was developed in Africa these bastards will come out in droves to condemn it and call Africans all sorts of ugly names. No African child will partake in such lunacy.

    Who told you it can never induce any African child into misfortune? The game is purely demonic. Even thou the victims in question are not Africans, only a complete fool or better still an insane man would commit suicide at the word of another. That is to show the words spoken are mystical and not ordinary.
