Speaking in an interview with Trust TV, the displeased mother of the late Boko Haram leader said she regret giving birth to him because he was a tragedy to humanity.
According to him, Shekauinflicted pains on her while he was alive and that they had since parted ways.
Going further, the woman noted that she is unaware if Shekau is dead or alive or whether he ever had children.
In her words;
“I don’t know if he (Shekau) had any offspring. I gave birth to him and 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.”
