Boko Haram factional leader, Abubakar Shekau has claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s bombing of Maiduguri.
The attack on the State capital on Tuesday left many dead and injured.
In a video seen by Channels Television, Shekau expressed his happiness with the attack, saying “I am truly elated with this milestone achievement by our fighters.”
He also denied that his farm was taken over and boasted that he had successfully established an Islamic caliphate.
“Don’t count yourself a Muslim simply because you pray the salat and give in charity,” he said. “No! So long as you embrace Western values you are not one of us. We will not be on the same page until you truly submit to Allah.”
