According to reports, the Niger State-based Nigerian super polygamist with about 100 wives, Bello Abubakar Masaba, has debunked rumours in some section of the media that he is dead, adding that it is the handiwork of his distracters.
Masaba was rumoured to have died after a brief sickness in Bida, Niger State.
But there were no sympathisers or any suspicious mood for bereavement noticed as the ancient town of Bida is as normal as it has been.
The octogenerian, who spoke on the phone laughing, said the rumour was baseless and that he is neither sick nor dead.
According to him: “My dear, I am very much alive, hale and hearty.
“This 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 people.
“I am seated outside and 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 advice those fighting against me to stop because such people are waging war against God, their creator.”
It should be noted that Masaba had married 107 women, with 97 wives still with him after divorcing 10 and has had 185 children, with 133 still surviving.
