ABUJA, Nigeria - Police in northern Nigeria have arrested a Muslim preacher who has 86 wives and 107 children for breaking Islamic marriage laws.

Niger state police spokesman Richard Oguche says Mohammed Bello Masaba, 84, was detained Monday.

It was unclear when he would appear in court, or what the potential punishment could be. Muslim principles forbid men from taking more than four wives.

Almost half of Nigeria's 140 million people are Muslim and Niger is one of twelve states in the country where Islamic Sharia law holds sway.


Yikes...

Geez- wouldn't the other men in the area get a little angry that he's hogging all the females.

Well, that's probably why he was eventually arrested. :)

You'd think they would have arrested him after, oh, I don't know, ten wives? :D

And Terez, I posted the contents of the article just for you. :D

Something to add:
I read this morning in our newspaper that, prior te being arrested, he'd ignored summons from a judge to divorce his wives.

Probably, Terez. :)

and... why, WHY would anyone wan't 84 wives!!!??? Is this guy rich? How big is his house, does he live in a compound, how does he keep his harem civil? Who's the oldest and youngest wives? Oldest and newest? Thier exact ages? Is he a prominent memeber of society, is he trying to start his own muslim sect? I've got a lot of questions. How about, why didn't his 84 wives gang up on him and kick his ass!!?

When I started that sentence, I thought it was going to say:

Almost half of Nigeria's 140 million people are descendants of 12 original fathers.

Actually, I was trying to avoid a lecture, but it seems I failed on that front... :D

But if thinking that makes you feel special, than okay, that's what I meant. :D

He has 84 wives and he only has 107 kids?

Unless he married about 60 of them in the last, uh..., 30 years surely he should have more kids. I mean 107 isn't even two kids per wife!

(though who would be insane enough to want 100 kids in the first place??)

Like Mat says "either he's the luckiest man alive, or the biggest fool since creation".

Maybe the medical knowledge isn't great around there, and a lot of babies don't survive childbirth? I'm not sure... there is an inconsistency there...
