A Nigerian man has gotten into big trouble under Sharia law.
ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Police in northern Nigeria have arrested a Muslim preacher who claims 86 wives and 107 children, charging him with breaking Islamic laws governing marriage.
Authorities detained Mohammed Bello Masaba, 84, on Monday after an order from northern Niger state’s Islamic court, according to police spokesman Richard Oguche. The preacher was charged with “infringing on Islamic laws,” Oguche told The Associated Press by telephone from the state.
