The Metropolitan Police has revealed the birth identity of the London attacker, Khalid Masood.
In a statement by Acting Deputy Commissioner Rowley, Masood’s birth name was Adrian Russell Ajao.
According to British newspaper, The Sun, Masood’s step dad is of Nigerian origin.
Masood 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.
According to the paper, Masood’s mother, Janet Ajao, spends her time listening to classical music with her husband, tending to her chickens and working on her crafts.
It was reported that Janet spoke briefly at the door to a uniformed officer yesterday.
A police source said, “She is too upset and adamant she won’t make any comment on anything at the moment.”
Officers said the search of their house has been “concluded” and that Janet told them she did not want them at the address and she “just wants to be left alone.”
