Vast areas in the three troubled North-East States of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe remain under control of the dreaded Boko Haram sect since August 2014.
There is not much information how the locals survive in the parts of the country being under the rule of militants who proclaimed 'the Islamic Caliphate'.
Some reports claimed that the insurgents initiate mass killings on the territories under their control. Other sources debunked such claims, reporting that people who follow rules and regulations imposed by Boko Haram have a good chance to survive.
A disturbing video, which was published on October 5, 2014, Sunday, on SaharaTV YouTube channel, sheds light on how the Islamists govern captured areas.
Below are the indicators which prove they do it in a really brutal way:
1. An unidentified man is buried in a shallow grave and stoned to death.
2. The hand of another unidentified man is chopped off.
3. A young man and a female wearing hijab were severely beaten in public by a Boko Haram member.

It would be noted that on September 17, 2014, the Catholic Church made a statement which estimated the number of Nigerian settlements captured by Boko Haram at 25.
The situation in Madagali/Michika areas of Adamawa state has worsened significantly recently due to endless raids by the sect members.
