Mohammed Bello Abubakar has over 170 children, many of which are older than his younger wives. It’s not surprising that he cannot even properly take care of his family and will ask his children to go and beg for money. What do you expect when you need more than 26 pounds of rice per meal and $900 dollars a day just for food?
The 84 year old Nigerian man claims that the Koran does not place a limit on how many wives a man can have as long as they are treated equally. He believes that God has given him the power to cope with over four score of wives. The Jamatu Nasril Islam (JNI) has concluded that this is not acceptable and that Mohammed must choose only four. If he does not comply he will face the death penalty, although it seems unlikely that it will be enforced.
