Why didn’t this devout Muslim just take his mistress as a third wife? Why lie? Under Islam, Muslims are permitted four wives.

By Luke Barnes For Mailonline, 29 May 2017:
Terrorists in Somalia have stoned a man to death in front of hundreds of onlookers for allegedly cheating on his two wives.
Dayow Mohamed Hassan, 44, was killed in the southern village of Ramo Adey by Al-Shabaab militants.
Moalim Geedow, the regional governor representing the al Qaeda-linked insurgency, said Hassan was buried neck-deep in a hole then pelted with stones.
He said: ‘The man was married with two wives and children. He was publicly stoned to death today for committing adultery according to the Islamic sharia.
‘The man had a third woman who was a divorcee. He did not have her according to sharia. He deceived her, saying that he went to a sheikh (local leader) and that he married her.
‘However, when the woman got pregnant, the two families debated and there was no trace of valid matrimony.
‘The court ruled he did not marry her legally and he was stoned to death.’
The victim was married with two wives before he took on a third woman who was a divorcee
Al-Shabaab has been fighting a violent insurgency to overthrow the weak U.N.-backed Somali government and impose its own strict interpretation of Islamic law.
In recent years the terrorist group has lost control of many towns and cities to a 22,000-strong force of African Union peacekeepers.
However the group retains a presence in the countryside and many villages and remains capable of launching deadly attacks.
