A potential suitor, Yari Inusa has lost his life in Katsina state after partaking in the dangerous Fulani traditional rite, Sharo.
Sharo, a native activity among the Fulani people is completed when two men vying for the hand of a maiden flog each other in turns with a cane in order to determine who the stronger man is.
It was during this event which took place at the Durmin Biri village, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State that Inusa lost his life when Ahmed Saidu hit him at th back of his head instead of his back as is the rule of the game.
Inusa then became unconscious and was rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.
Inusa while flogging Saidu had followed the rules and recorded no casualty but he was not so lucky.
Saidu was immediately arrested when the case was reported to the police by Inusa’s father.
Inusa has since been buried according to Muslim rites.
