ENUGU herbalist Simon Odo has justified his decision to marry 58 wives saying that he does so because many women become widows early as their husbands die prematurely due to the pressure they get from bad spouses.
Mr Odo, popularly called Onu Uwa, who is also known as King of Satan, recently married his 58th wife and has come under criticism for his actions. In response, he said he could not tolerate insolence and unruly behaviour from the women, adding that he used to marry a new wife anytime he was let down by the attitude of any of his previous wives.
According to the herbalist, who hails from Aji in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State, he is capable of catering for his large family. He said God did not make mistakes by giving him many children as He provides for all His creatures.
He added: “I marry anytime any of my wives insults me. I cannot stand a woman insulting me.
“If there are 20 dead men in Nigeria, for instance, only five of them die naturally. The other 15 deaths are caused by heartbreaks and bad attitudes of their wives, which is why I marry anytime a woman insults me.
“God has abandoned humanity due to the spate of evil they perpetrate. He no longer answers our prayers because we have no love for Him or our fellow human beings and children do not obey their parents anymore, which was not the case when I was young, as back then, there was absolute respect for elders.”
