The warning was given by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed via a statement issued by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi on Thursday, June 16, 2016.
The statement reads in part:
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.
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.
