A popular native doctor in Enugu, who has been identified as Simon Odo, who married 59 wives and sired over 300 children and grandchildren is dead.
The Eastern Updates reports that he died on Tuesday.
His son, Emeka Odo, who confirmed the death of the septuagenarian, who answered ‘King of Satan,’ said his father died after a protracted illness and would be buried the same day at his country home, Aji, in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State, as he left instruction for the family not to deposit his remains in the mortuary upon death.
Emeka said: ‘Yes King of Satan is dead, he died this morning(yesterday). He has been down with illness for about three weeks now.’
His son added: ‘We are having family meeting to perfect arrangement for his burial as he left instruction that we should not deposit his corpse in a mortuary.’
Emeka, who would not respond to further questions, however, said the death of his father is a big blow to the family given the number of his family members.
The Eastern Updates gathered that the late native doctor married his 59th wife recently and had packed into his new house with her.
It will be recalled that while explaining why he married 58 wives, the late native doctor, who was also known as ‘Onuwa,’ had said; ‘If there are 20 dead men in Nigeria, for instance, only five of them died naturally.
‘The other 15 were caused by heartbreaks and bad attitudes from their wives. That is why I marry anytime a woman insults me.’
He was buried following traditional rites.
