"I’m alive" says Nigerian man with 90 wives


Bello Abubakar Masaba, the popular octogenarian, who resides in Bida, Niger State, with over 90 wives, has dismissed rumours of his death, saying “I am still alive, bubbling in good health. The rumour is baseless and can best be described as the work of my detractors because they envy what God has done and what He is still doing for me."


A media report had said Bello had died after a brief illness in Bida. But Bello told Vanguardngr, “What I am doing is divine. It is an assignment and I will keep doing it till the end.” In 2008, Bello was detained for weeks for not following the sharia law of marrying not more than four wives.

He was ordered to divorce about 82 of his wives, leaving him with just four (at that time because he later married more), as prescribed by Islam, but he refused. The case dragged into an Abuja High Court, where he was released after the testimony of 57 of the wives that they married him willingly.

In an interview, Bello revealed 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."
