Falmata Abubakar, Abubakar Shekau’s mother claims she had long disowned her son, the murdered Boko Haram commander.
Falmata stated in an interview with Daily Trust TV that there is no difference between her and her child whether she is alive or dead.
She claimed that Shekau had caused her so much sorrow that she had given up on him.
“I gave birth to him and on my own part, that is the only and last thing between us. Whether he is alive or not; we have parted ways.”
“I never knew whether he had any offspring. He inflicted severe pain on me. God Almighty will judge between us in the hereafter.”
In May, Shekau was killed during a face-off with fighters of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP)
