The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Abubakar Audu, who died on Sunday vomited blood before he gave up the ghost.
The media reported that he died of undisclosed medical reasons.
While some attributed it to heart attack, others speculated different causes.
Speaking to a source close to the family said his relatives narrated how he died.
“I spoke with someone in late Prince Audu’s family.
“The person told me that the former governor repeatedly vomited blood.
“The family tried to rush him to the hospital but he died in the process.
“There is speculation of food poison or spiritual attack but no one can say for now.
“But his family confided in me that blood kept gushing out from his mouth.”
An autopsy is very unlikely as Audu would be buried within 24 hours according to Islamic rites.
