The sad event occurred in Durmin Biri village, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State, where two suitors engage in a flogging contest to win a bride.

A certain man Yari Inusa has reportedly died after engaging in a suitor flogging competition in Katsina State.

The Katsina State Police Command spokesman, DSP Gambo Isah said: “Inusa’s father, Mallam, reported the incident to the police, leading to the arrest of Saidu.”

The victim Inusa sustained head injuring which lead to his eventual death during the Fulani traditional game of Sharo with a contested named Ahmed Saidu. The purpose is to seek a strong man suitable to marry the bride in promise.

Ahmed who took the first round of flogging did fine as he did not sustain any serious injuries. Things took a down turn when Ahmed whipped Yari Inusa on his head against the rules of the game causing his death.
