A man in Katsina State in northern Nigeria, Yari Inusa, has died while partaking in the marriage rites game known as Sharo.
The incident took place in Durmin Biri village, Kafur Area where the victim was reportedly hit on the head by his rival which led to his death.
Sharo involves two suitors flogging each other with canes in a bid to win a maiden’s hand in marriage.
Yari, who was competing against another suitor named Saidu, was said to have flogged Saidu without any incident.
But Saidu hit Yari behind the head which led to the latter passing out and being rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.
Saidu was later arrested while Yari’s body was returned to the family for the funeral rites.
