FG Alerts Nigerians To ISIS Indoctrination Mobile App Targeting Children
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, 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, according a statement issued by his spokesperson, Segun Adeyemi, on Thursday.
He urged members of the public in general and parents in particular to be vigilant and to prevent their children and wards from being indoctrinated.
