The Federal Government has alerted Nigerians to the existence of a

newly-launched mobile application developed by the Islamic State of

Iraq and Syria (ISIS) for propagating Jihad to children.

 

In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday, the Minister of

Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the mobile

application, tagged ‘Huroof’ (Arabic alphabets or letters), is to be

used by ISIS to teach children the Arabic alphabets with the aid of

guns, military tanks and cannons.

 

”The application utilizes colourful illustrations that attract and

engage the attention of young children,” the Minister said, urging

members of the public in general and parents in particular to be vigilant

and to prevent their children and wards from being indoctrinated
