A Niger state indigence with 97 wives and over 190 children, Alhaji Bello Abubakar Masaba, has said that God in his wisdom has given him the power and strength to satisfy his wives sexually, according to a Daily Post report.
Alhaji Masaba, an Islamic scholar and faith healer who was detained in 2008 for not keeping the sharia law of marrying not more than four wives.
He refused the order by a sharia court to make do with about 82 of his wives, a move that would have left him with just four wives at that because he later married more.
When the case was dragged into an Abuja High Court, he was released after 57 of the wives testified that they married him willingly.
Masaba told newsmen during the weekend in Bida, Niger State how he continues to make history as Nigeria’s most prolific man, by marrying even more wives every time he comes across a new ‘Miss Right’.
He said, “In his wisdom, God has given me the power and strength to give them the sexual portion they need. If I didn’t satisfy them, they would leave.”
There had been rumours that the 87-year-old polygamist recently died after a brief illness, but he has come out to debunk the report, saying he is alive and well.
