The Federal Government has drawn the attention of Nigerians to the existence of a newly-launched mobile application developed by the Islamic State in 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 utilises 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. (THE WILL)
