The All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship

candidate in Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Audu, is

dead.

He died on Sunday, shortly after the Independent

National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the

state governorship election as inconclusive.

A source close to the ex-Kogi governor confirmed

his death on Sunday.

The APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-

Oyegun, told The Nation, the party is trying to

establish contact with the deceased’s family.

Audu was on the verge of a sensational return to

the Kogi Government House before INEC ordered a

supplementary election in some local government

areas because of perceived irregularities.

Over 49, 000 votes were cancelled by the electoral

commission.

Before the announcement, Audu was leading his

closest challenger, Idris Wada, of the Peoples

Democratic Party (PDP) with 240, 867 votes to 199,

514.
