Check Your Child’s Phone. Delete the App ‘Huroof’. It’s by ISIS, warns FG.

Nigeria’s government has warned parents that the Islamic State group has launched a new mobile phone application to promote jihad among children, under the guise of educating them.

In a statement, Information Minister Alhaji Lai Mohammed urged parents to make sure their children stayed away from the application Huroof (or Alphabets in Arabic), which teaches children the  Arabic alphabets with the aid of guns, military tanks and cannons. (BBC)

‘The application utilises colourful illustrations that attract and engage the attention of young children.”Huroof-Jihad-app-jide-salu
