Politics: What Killed Governor Abubakar Audu of Kogi State?

Governor Abubakar Audu of Kogi state passed on in the early hours of Sunday November 22 2015. This is less than 24 hours of the conduct of the Kogi general elections which had generated much tension in the state and between the two front running parties – APC and PDP. As at the earlier announcements of his passing, it was not clear what led to his death.

News emerging now indicate that Audu’s health started failing from Friday night. According to sources within his family, Audu was already known to be hypertensive. He was however reported to have started vomiting blood on Friday night.

Audu was reported to have been able to go perform his civic duties only after receiving blood transfusion. The transfusion given him by his doctors gave him just enough strength to go cast his vote in Ogbonicha his hometown.

Mr Audu appeared to have passed on long before INEC collated and declared the result of the polls inconclusive. This was confirmed by INEC officials.

With the information that Mr Audu started vomiting blood on Friday night, there is likely going to be suspicion of foul play surrounding his death. Mr Audu will be buried tomorrow according to Islamic rite so it is therefore not clear if any autopsy will be performed to ascertain if he died of natural causes or if there was foul play involved.

With his death now, APC is sure to begin to experience fresh contests as politicians in the APC attempt to either take his position or the position of the deputy governor if the deputy governor is adopted as the APC gubernatorial candidate.

Whether this death will affect the final outcome of the elections in Kogi state is yet to be seen.
