Kogi APC Governorship candidate, Abubakar Audu, feared dead


The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Saturday’s governorship election, Abubakar Audu, has died, his friend and close associate confirmed.

Prince Abubakar Audu was first reported to be dead by Sahara Reporters. After the news went viral, more details emerged as to how the former governor who was seeking another turn met his demise.

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.

According to The Cable, sources say Audu complained of stomach cramps before going to bed last night.

He subsequently suffered a stroke this morning around 9am.
