While speaking in an exclusive interview with the South East Voice at his palatial home at Aji, Enugu Ezike in Igboeze North LGA of Enugu State, a 70-year-old herbalist, Simon Odo Okoro, said he has divorced his 57 wives after accusing some of his children of allegedly sleeping with some of his wives.
Odo, also known variously as Onuwa, King Solomon of Africa or King of Satan had altogether been married to 69 women but some of them had earlier died.
The herbalist who married his 57th wife in November 2015 and vowed not to marry again, having had a fair share of women in his life, broke his vow not marry again by quickly re-marrying one of the youngest of his divorced wives, an 18-year-old Chidinma, who pleaded with him to marry her so that she could take care of him as an old man.
“The girl who lured me to marry her returned from the United States. She told me to marry her so that she would take care of me as an old man. She is from Enugu State. However, a month after the marriage was consummated, she told me to sack the youngest one, Chidinma and I became furious with her because that was not why I married her. I beat her and she left,” he said.
While speaking on the allegation that some of his children (names withheld) not only slept with some of his wives but planned to kill him, Okoro said he would disown any of his sons involved in criminal activities.
