Is There More To This Nigerian Polygamist With 97 Wives That Meets The Eye?

A famous Nigerian polygamist Mohammed Bello Abubakar has shot down rumours of his death saying he is still “very much alive”.

92-year-old Mohammed, from Bida, Niger State, has married a total of 107 wives, 10 of whom he has divorced and he has outlived most of his 185 children.

He describes his polygamist lifestyle as a “divine calling” but he has angered local Islamic authorities, who describe his household as a cult.

Mohammed told The Nation that jealous people were behind the evil rumours of his death because “they envy what God has done and what He is still doing for me. What I am doing is divine. It is an assignment and I will keep doing it till the end,” he said.

He added: “I only have 97 wives, I am still going to marry more. I will keep marrying them for as long I am alive … I just want to advise those fighting against the number of my wives to stop because such people are waging war against God, their creator.”
