As the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State, Alhaji Abubakar Audu, was said to be in early lead, there was pandemonium as a negative report filtered through, Sunday evening.
Alhaji Abubakar Audu was reported dead according to Sahara Reporters.
A source close to Audu said the politician suddenly took ill and was being rushed to Abuja on preparation to being flown abroad, but he died in the process.
According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the governorship election was said to be inconclusive though Audu was leading.
Jubilation has however been halted in the camp of the APC since Audu was reported dead.
More reports on the development are being awaited.
