Death Or 86 Wives?

If you were a given choice to choose, either 86 ladies or death, which one would you choose?

For men generally, where could you get 86 ladies at one go at your mercy ...... hehehe. But one of our brothers in Nigeria was able to do so. As blogged previously on Mohammed Bello Abubakar (aged 84), the Islamic authorities have given him an ultimatum, choose 4 wives out of the 86 ladies that he has with him now or the death penalty will await him.

Hmmmmmm that's going to be a big headache for him. He was supposed to have chosen the lucky 4 ladies where the deadline was yesterday.

He could be challenging the Islamic authorities in the sharia court as to which part of the Koran has placed a limit on the number of wives but he quoted that it was up to what your own power, your own endowment and ability allows.

haha. 86 wives seriously too much to handle la. even Hugh Hefner cannot handle so many bunnies at one time. this dude here will cause chaos when he goes to the Syariah court. i don't think they can even house all his wives in one courtroom. LOL
