There are many speculations surrounding the death of late gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Abubakar Audu, who died on Sunday.
While some say he slumped and died of a cardiac, others say there may be more to his death than meets the eye.
One particular report circulating online says that the late 68 year old vomited blood before giving up the ghost.
A source close to the situation who pleaded anonymity is reported to have said:
“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. Idris Wada who is incumbent Governor of the state has declared seven days mourning for him.
