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.
Family sources have revealed how APC governorship candidate, Audu Abubakar died yesterday Sunday November 22nd, hours before INEC declared the state governorship election inconclusive.
A member of the late politicians family said Audu started vomiting blood on Saturday November 21st, the day of the election.
He was so weak and had blood transfusion to enable him go to his polling unit to vote.
His condition however deteriorated on Sunday morning when he suffered a stroke and died at his home in Ogbonicha. “After a while he became unconscious and died around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning,” the family source said.
While some attributed it to heart attack, others speculated different causes.
In a related report, another 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.
