From BBC News: Africa
A Nigerian man with 86 wives, Mohammadu Bello Abubakar, has been arrested by an Islamic court for refusing to divorce all but four of them.
He was picked up in a pre-dawn raid on his house in Bida, Niger state and charged with “insulting religious creed” and “unlawful marriages”.
A Sharia court judge denied him bail until another hearing on October 6.
Last week he won a court injunction preventing authorities banishing him if he refused to divorce his wives.
Mr Bello Abubakar, an Islamic preacher, has more than 170 children.
