Fulani suitor dies in Katsina Marriage flogging.


Yari Inusa, a young man from Durmin Biri village, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State has died while competing with another suitor for a lady's hand in marriage.

According to Police, the man died due to the injuries he sustained on the head when he engaged in a Fulani traditional game of Sharo with another man, Ahmed Saidu, to determine who would marry the Maiden.

Sharo game typically entails two male suitors flogging each other for a woman’s hand in marriage. Whoever wins between them will marry the girl.

Inusa had reportedly flogged Saidu without any incident, but tragedy struck when it was the turn of Saidu to flog Inusa.

Saidu allegedly hit Inusa on the head, instead of hitting him on the back as the rules of the game dictate.

Inusa was said to have fainted after he was hit on the head, and eventually died.

The Katsina State Police Command spokesman, DSP Gambo Isah, confirmed the incident.

He said, “Inusa’s father, Mallam, reported the incident to the police, leading to the arrest of Saidu.”He said Inusa’s corpse had been released to the family and buried according to Islamic rites.
