Living under Boko Haram in Nigeria

Al Jazeera speaks to residents of Yola in northeastern Nigeria who have lived in areas under control of the armed group.

    The Nigerian military has said that it is trying to regain territories seized by Boko Haram in the north of the country.

    The armed group has been capturing towns as part of an attempt to establish a so-called caliphate. 

    But to what extent is it actually governing these areas?

    Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reports from Yola, where she met people who lived under Boko Haram control.
