Inusa had been competing for the hand of a lady with another man Ahmed Saidu when he was hit over his head with the cane, Punch reports.

The event reportedly happened in Durmin Biri community, inside the Kafur Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Sharo is a fulani game involving two suitors flogging each other to win a maiden’s hand in marriage.

Inusa had reportedly flogged Saidu without accident.

When it was Saidu’s turn, he flogged Inusa at the back of his head, rather than on his back as the rules of the game says.

Inusa had reportedly passed out and was taken to the hospital, where he was confirmed dead.

Inusa’s father reported the incident to the police, and Saidu was immediately arrested.

Inusa’s corpse has been released to the family, and has now been buried according to Islamic rites.
