The rebel leader of Boko Haram made the statement during a horrifying video which shows soldiers shooting a group of prisoners on the floor Earlier on today, I told you all about Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram’s leader, declaring an Islamic caliphate in Gwoza town, a town seized by the extremist militants earlier this month. Abubakar had released a video today, obtained by AFP, in which he made the declaration. Turns out that Abubakar made the declarationalongside a footage of prisoners being shot while on the floor. The prisoners were told to lie in a ditch before assault rifles were aimed at their heads.
