Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau declared the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate in north-eastern Nigeria. “We are in an Islamic Caliphate,” said Shekau, flanked by masked fighters and cradling a machine gun. “We have nothing to do with Nigeria. We don’t believe in this name.”

Boko Haram’s Caliphate is based in north-eastern Nigeria, and is centred around the cities of Damboa and Gwoza.

Doing like ISIL in Syria & Iraq, since April, Boko Haram – or Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’Awati Wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad), which is the group’s actual name – has drastically changed its tactics, seeking to occupy territory in addition to its usual guerrilla attacks.
