Suitor Dies In Katsina Sharo Marriage Flogging Game

A young man, Yari Inusa, has died while competing with another suitor for a lady’s hand in marriage. The incident happened at Durmin Biri village, in the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State.




Police sources said the man died following 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 lady.


Sharo game 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 dictates, leading to His Death.


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

When people talk about not losing our traditions this is not one of such. This one should be castaway to the animals in the forest.
Archaic tradition.

We Fulanis do not practice this. It is strictly a Bororo tradition but Bororos are a subset of the Fulani's so we understand and pardon when people mistake the two.
