A controversial Muslim preacher who married 86 wives, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Masaba has died in Bida at the age of 93.
Disclosing this to nesmen in Bida was his Personal Assistant, Alhaji Mutairu Salawudeen Bello, who said that the preacher died in his residence in Bida, Niger State, on Saturday, after a brief illness.
“From Allah we come, to Him we shall all return; we announce the death of Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Bello Masaba this afternoon. He was aged 93 years. He died after a brief illness,” Bello told newsmen.
According to Bello, his boss would be buried at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 29.
He said that the preacher had a premonition of his death and prepared for it.
“Baba (Masaba), told us that his time was up; he personally told me that he had completed his divine assignment and was ready to meet his creator.
“He also told us to remain dedicated to the cause of Islam and urged us never to deviate from his teachings on righteousness, piety and total submission to the will of Allah.
“He warned us to shun adultery but said that we should marry our women because it is ‘Hallal’ (right), before Allah,” Bello said.
