An 88-year-old man from Niger State, Bello Abubakar Masaba, with 97 wives and about 190 children, has said that he is able to meet his wives’ sexually needs because “God has given (him) the power and strength,” DAILYPOST reports.
Masaba, an Islamic scholar and healer, was detained in 2008 for failing the keep the Sharia Law of not marrying more than 4 wives, told newsmen over the weekend in Bida, Niger State that every time he comes across a new ‘Miss Right’, he marries her.
“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,” the octogenarian said.
Masaba failed to obey the order by the Sharia Court, which said that he should let go of 82 of the 86 wives he had at the time (2008).
The case dragged into an Abuja High Court and he was released after 57 of the wives testified that they married him willingly.
He also debunked rumours of his death.
“My dear, I am very much alive, hale and hearty. The rumour is baseless. It is the work of my detractors because they are envious of what God is using me to do in the lives of the people. I am talking with you live and direct from my house in Bida.
What I am doing is divine. It is an assignment and I will keep doing it till the end of time. I just want to advise those fighting against me to stop because such people are waging war against God, their Creator,”he told PUNCH via the telephone.
