CKN News can now authoritatively confirm the death of APC's candidate in the just concluded guber election in Kogi State,Prince Abubakar Audu.A top aide of the two term governor who spoke with us few minutes ago confirmed the report..he was seen here voting yesterday.According to the aide who does not want his name on print,the ex governor ,became sick after he came back from where he went to cast his vote yesterday..He started vomiting blood,which was unusual,an attempt to stabilize him failed.He lost so much blood,an attempt was made to get him infused with more blood by his doctors..His condition detoriated thereafter.He later gave up the ghost even before INEC announced the election inconclusive.The aide said contrary to the belief that he died as a result of INEC announcement,he has died earlier.His remains is expected to be buried tomorrow.Meanwhile ,the entire state is in total state of shock when the news broke.Many still don't believe the story.His death may also raise some constitutional issues according to some lawyers that have spoken to u about the issue.It was confirmed to CK News that Abubakar Audu has been sick for sometime now and has been managing the crisis, before the election.
