The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Auduis dead.

Audu died on Sunday, November 22, 2015, while in a clear lead in the elections which held on Saturday, 21.

The polls were later declared to be inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

It’s not yet clear what caused the APC candidate’s death as while some are attributing it to a heart attack, yet others say he had two strokes in a short space of time.

“This is a tragedy. I just lost my boss. He did not make it despite the efforts of everybody here to revive him.  Everyone is crying here and I will call you later,” an aide told The Nation after the news broke.

A family source told Sahara Reporters, the platform which broke the news, that the late politician was vomiting blood before he died.

“He started vomiting blood after he returned from Lokoja. After a while he became unconscious and died around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning,” the source said.

“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,” another source supposedly told Daily Post.

Several conspiracy theories have arisen as to who killed Audu due to the suddenness and unexpectedness of his death.

Some of those theories are:

In the end however, the only thing that truly took Abubakar Audu’s life is death.

Death is an end that must come to everyone and it’s a fate that no one can avoid, whether they have enemies or not.

Audu was 68-years-old, he had been a governor of his state and had worked in the banking sector for 25 years, so by any standard, he lived a full life.

The death of the would-be governor of Kogi State is an extremely sad occurrence but there is nothing new under the sun.

It’s time to put the conspiracy theories to rest and let sleeping dogs, and the dead, lie in peace.

Good night, Prince Abubakar Audu.
