Meet a Nigerian Islamic faith healer and polygamist man who has made marriage a full-time job, taking 107 brides and fathering 185 children.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Bello Maasaba, now 87, is currently married to 86 wives between the ages of 19 and 64. He has buried nine spouses and divorced 12 and his youngest child is one month old.
"I get a revelation from God telling me any woman I'm going to marry," the New York Daily quoted Maasaba as telling the Times.
"If it wasn't from God, I wouldn't have gone beyond two," he added.
The polygamist lives with his family in an 89-room house in the city of Bida. His extended family including in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews now numbers about 5,000.
Maasaba was arrested three years ago for his audacious act, when he refused an order from Islamic authorities to divorce all but four of his wives.owever, when the case went to trial, dozens of his spouses testified they were married of their own free will. After hearing from 57 women, the court ordered Maasaba's release.
