For the last many months it has been on a rampage plundering villages and towns and seizing them. They have successfully planted the balck and white flag od al-Qaida in the Borno and Adamawa states. They are also responsible of the kidnapping of the 200 schoolgirls whom they have claimed have been converted to Islam and married off.
