Corpse of Khalid Masood

The London attacker who injured over 40 people and killed about 4 victims around the United Kingdom parliament has been technically linked to Nigeria.

It has been revealed that the stepdad of the London attacker, Khalid Masood, is of Nigerian origin.

According to The SUN, the man, Khaleed, was born as Adrian Russel, but later adopted his mother’s husband’s surname, Ajao.

His step dad is 77-year-old Mr. Philip Ajao, who is believed to be of Nigerian background.

The mother of the killer, Janet Ajao, spends her time listening to classical music with her husband, tending to her chickens and working on her crafts.

The SUN reports that Janet and Philip turned heads when they moved in as the first mixed-race marriage in the tiny village of Trelech, Carmarthenshire, population 745.
