Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Bello Masaba, an Islamic scholar who caused a rumpus in the country a few years ago when news of his marriage to more than 90 wives broke, has died at the ripe old age of 93.

Alhaji Masaba reportedly died on the morning of Saturday, January 28, 2017, at his Bida, Niger State residence following a brief illness.

His personal assistant, Alhaji Mutairu Salawudeen Bello, who confirmed the death of the serial polygamist who was at one time at loggerheads with some Muslim clerics over his many wives, said he actually predicted his death and knew when he was about to go and as such, the family was fully prepared.

Alhaji Bello wrote on his social media account on the demise of the preacher who was hated by many due to his insistence that there was nothing wrong in marrying many women:

“With gratitude to Allah (SWT), we announce the death of Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Bello this afternoon. He was aged 93 years.

He died after a brief illness. Baba had told us that his time was up. He told me personally during his last moment that he has completed his divine assignment and was ready to meet his creator.

He told us to remain dedicated to the cause of Islam and urged us all not to deviate from all his teachings on righteousness, piety and total submission to the will of Allah.

He warned us to shun adultery, but that we should marry our women because it is ‘Hallal’ before Allah.”

His death has now rendered close to a hundred women widows but it is left to be seen if the Niger State government would organize a mass wedding for them.
