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.

Inusa was said to have fainted after he was hit on the head; and eventual died.
The Katsina State Police Command spokesman, DSP Gambo Isah, confirmed the incident.
He said, “Inusa’s father, Mallam, reported the incident to the police, leading to the arrest of Saidu.”
He said Inusa’s corpse had been released to the family and buried according to Islamic rites.
