Nigeria preacher with 130 wives dies aged 93, leaves 200 children behind

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Muslim cleric, 93, who wed 130 wives has died in Nigeria, leaving behind more than 200 children, The Daily Mail reports.

Mohammed Bello Abubakar died from an unknown illness in Niger State and large crowds turned out for his funeral on Sunday, January 29.

It is believed that some of his wives are pregnant.

According to the serial polygamist's personal assistant, the cleric had a premonition of death before he passed.

In 2008 he faced criticism from other Muslim preachers who demanded that he must divorce 82 of his 86 wives within 48 hours.

But Bello said that it was his 'divine' mission to keep marrying.

He tied the knot 130 times, although 10 of his marriages ended in divorce.
