“I Have Not Seen My Son For 15 Years” – Mother Of Boko Haram Leader

The Mother Of the Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau narrates how she was not able to see her son for years

Driving west from the city of Maiduguri, Nigeria, the roads get narrower as the towns get smaller. Along the road lie, bullet-ridden buildings and security checkpoints as vigilante members patrol gates, all signs of a region where people are trying their best to protect themselves. After three hours VOA ends up in Yobe state, at a village called Shekau. Here, elders and community leaders take VOA to meet Falmata Abubakar, who they say is the mother of Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.

His father was a local district imam before passing away a few years ago.
Falmata Abubakar is the mother Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the terrorist organization, Boko Haram. She granted her first media interview to VOA, saying she has not seen her son in 15 years.
Falmata said she had never spoken to journalists before VOA approached her, and she does not know where her son is hiding.
