THE Bida man with over 90 wives, Bello Abubakar Masaba, on Sunday condemned reports making the rounds in some media that he is dead, saying “it is the work of my detractors.”

The media had rumoured that Masaba, who had worked as a teacher and Imam, died after a brief sickness in Bida, Niger State.

The octogenarian, who spoke on the telephone with our correspondent, said the rumour was baseless, adding that “I’m neither sick nor dead.”

He added, “My dear, I am very much alive, hale and hearty. The 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 the people. 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 advise those fighting against me to stop because such people are waging war against God, their Creator.”

Masaba had earlier married 107 women but later divorced 10 of them. Out of his 185 children, only 133 are still alive.
