In Katsina: Man Flogged to Death During Competition For Lady’s Hand in Marriage

Yari Inusa has been reported dead while competing with another suitor for a lady’s hand in marriage at Durmin Biri village, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State. 

According to the police, he engaged in a Fulani traditional game of Sharo with another man, Ahmed Saidu, to determine who would marry the lady. Sharo game entails two male suitors flogging each other for a woman’s hand in marriage, with the winner marrying the lady.
