Muslim Cleric Who Had 130 Wives Dies Aged 93

Masaba Nigeria's Islamic scholar with 90 wives dies

His personal assistant, Mutairu Salawudeen Bello, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) his employer had died at home "following a brief illness".

Mohammed Bello Abubakar died from an unknown illness on Saturday in Bida of Niger State and large crowds turned out for his funeral on Sunday, Daily Mail reported.

A saddened Bello said that his late-boss had a premonition of his death and was prepared for it.

A self-proclaimed healer, Baba Masaba, revealed that he met many of his army of wives when they came to him for help.

One of his wives said she could not reject his proposal because it was a command from God, according to the BBC.

Some of Masaba's wives protest in front of a court room during his arrest in 2008.

In 2008 the Muslic cleric was widely criticized by other Muslim preachers for divorcing 82 wives out of 86 then within 48 hours. Locals say their number rose from 86 to 130 wives at the time of his death, with a number of them allegedly pregnant.

He also left behind 203 children and many grand children as well as army of dependants. He told me personally during his last moment that he has completed his divine assignment and was ready to meet his creator. "I will consider the fact that God has asked me to do it and I will just marry them", he said.
