There are indications the candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi, Abubakar Audu, may not have died as a result of the news of the declaration of Saturday’s election as inconclusive.

It was learnt that Mr. Audu’s health problem started on Saturday evening.

A relative told Premium Times his problem started when he complained of stomach cramps on Saturday.
“He suffered a stroke in the morning,” the source said.
“Another one occurred in the afternoon and that was fatal.”
Though too shattered to provide details of the politician’s passing, a close friend and close associate of the late politician confirmed he was in the candidate’s company when he passed on.

The source said the former governor suddenly took ill and was being rushed to Abuja preparatory to being flown abroad when he passed on.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared the Saturday governorship election inconclusive, but Mr. Audu was in a pole position to be declared winner eventually.

A family source said that many people had gathered in his family home weeping over the sudden passing away of the APC governorship candidate.
“I am aware that right now so many people have gathered in his house and they are weeping seriously,” the source said.
“As a Muslim he would be buried at 10 am tomorrow morning.”
Relatives and associates have also gathered at his residence in the GRA area of Lokoja, the Kogi state capital.
