It could also mean "step mother". Here is the kanji for that.
異母

For "wart" the kanji is this.


"Ibo" itself is either "member of a Negroid people of W Africa, living chiefly in S Nigeria" or the language of such people. Live with it.

Since the origin of your nickname was not Japanese, then your nickname was not "wart" all this time.
