Shekau’s Wife Dies In Military Airstrike

1 min read

After a recent bombing raid that killed one of the wives of Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, the Nigerian military on Wednesday said it is investigating the incident.
According to reports, on October 19, fighter jets attacked what was called ” a large gathering of Boko Haram” at the Durwawa settlement, near Urga in the Konduga area of Borno State.
In an emailed statement, Airforce Spokesman Air Commodore, Olatokunbo Adesanya, said the bombing killed jihadists on the ground and triggered a fire. “Efforts are ongoing to confirm the reported killing of Shekau’s wife, alongside other BHTs (Boko Haram terrorists),” he said. Shekau’s wife was identified only as Mallama Fitdasi. Mallama means “madam” in Hausa and shows a sign of honour.
According to Adesanya, Fitdasi was “reported to have been representing her husband in a coordinating meeting with other terrorists at the location of the airstrikes”. Shekau is known to have four wives, including one of Muhammad Yusuf’s widows.
