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.

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