FG Issues Alert On New ISIS Mobile App
The Federal Government has alerted Nigerians about 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 late Thursday, the Minister of Information and Culture,
Lai Mohammed, said the mobile application, tagged ‘Huroof’ (Arabic alphabets or letters), is designed 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.
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.
