The leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau in a new video has declared the town he has seized in North-East Nigeria an 'islamic caliphate' that no longer has anything to do with the nation.

Vanguard newspaper has the story:

“Thanks be to Allah who gave victory to our brethren in (the town of) Gwoza and made it part of the Islamic caliphate,” Abubakar Shekau said in the 52-minute video.

He declared that Gwoza, in Borno state, now has “nothing to do with Nigeria”.

“By the grace of Allah we will not leave the town. We have come to stay,” said Shekau, who has been designated a global terrorist by the United States and sanctioned by the UN Security Council.

The United Nations humanitarian office (OCHA) earlier this month confirmed reports that Gwoza was under rebel control.
