    Mohammed Bello Abubakar, known as Baba Masaba, died at his home in central Niger state on Saturday after an undisclosed illness.

    A large crowd attended his funeral on Sunday.

    Nigeria’s Daily Trust newspaper reported that while he had 86 wives in 2008 – when he was at the centre of media attention – the number had risen to 130 at the time of his death.

    Some of them were pregnant, it reported.

    Probably not all pregnant by him, however.

    The BBC reported in 2008 that Mr Abubakar had at least 170 children, but the Daily Trust said that he left behind 203 children.

    The wives the BBC spoke to in 2008 said they met Mr Abubakar when they went to him to seek help for various illnesses, which they say he cured.

    … Such claims alienated the Islamic authorities in Nigeria, who had branded his family a cult
    Fortunately for him he was deaf !

    Sources are now saying that Masaba's age was an estimate made by the local Coroner, and that his Birth Certificate indicates that he was really only 27.
