L-R: National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Kogi State, Audu Abubakar, an unidentified member of the APC and Chief Bisi Akande one of the leaders of the APC during a meeting with President Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari before the May 29 inauguration

A group by the name, Kogi United Forum has called on the Inspector General of Police to commence immediate investigation into what it described as the suspected assassination of Prince Abubakar Audu a former governor of Kogi State and gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 21, gubernatorial election in Kogi State.

The group in a statement signed by its National President, Tunde Aina is accusing the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of allegedly masterminding the assassination of the late Audu.

Audu, it was gathered started vomiting blood shortly after casting his vote on Saturday and sharing a meal with the APC National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Lokoja. Audu eventually passed on at about 6 am on Saturday morning while election results were being collated.

Efforts by his family members to make the news public was truncated as Tinubu advised against it on the premise that it could work against the APC, should his death be announced early.

Tinubu, for whatever intents and purposes was hoping Audu would be announced winner after which his running mate, Hon. Abiodun Faleke, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ikeja Federal Constituency of Lagos State who was single-handedly handpicked by Tinubu as Audu’s running mate would then be declared governor.

The question we are asking is simple: who would have been the biggest beneficiary of the death of Audu seeing that he was already reported to be leading the polls and coasting home to victory?

The Kogi United Forum smells a huge rat in the untidy events that have played out in the death of Audu and therefore demands the following:

“The immediate investigation of the death of Abubakar Audu as a case of cold-blooded murder and political assassination.

“That the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu be immediately arrested by the Nigerian Police and investigated thoroughly for the murder of Audu.”

Signed
Tunde Aina

  1. Accusing Tinubu of masterminding Audu’s death has shown how shallow you are in thinking. So painful to see able bodied men making crumbs of out peoples death. No one is stopping or will stop the police’s investigation but pointing an accusing finger on an individual is not just fair on Tinibu but a disgrace to young we chose to make money from tarnishing great names built with hardwork and commitment. The writer has just wasted mins. If not hours of his time writing jagoons , I suggest he gets a job than trying to get cheap firm.

  2. I thought we had gone pass the delusional age like this in our democracy? How feasible and realistic is the concocted lies like this could sell to the people without a spat on the back of the group peddling this? ASIWAJU BOLA Tinubu who was in lagos on Saturdays, where he received the wife of the President at his Ikoyi Residence was again at Lokoja sharing meal with Audu. This is only good for recant in the memory of the fool and disgruntle members of the group, if such group exist at all. The question is; is BAT a register voter in Kogi? If not what business of his is he holding him down in Lokoja during elections.
    The group should however, state their true intent, there the people of Kogi will know how to cope with their ignorance.

  3. can they do tunibu anything nigeria is still hv along way to go. nigeria politics a dirty game look at how fresh goodluck looks since living aso rock

  4. Politics in Nigeria is a very dirty game. These politician think that they are givers and takers of life. They should take it easy. The world belongs to no one. RIP to the dead. God knows best.

    • Politics in Nigeria is a very dirty game. These politician think that they are givers and takers of life. They should take it easy. The world belongs to no one. RIP to the dead. God knows best.

      The above comment was not made by me. So, which Bertram made it?

  5. God is the giver and taker of life.whether the insinuation is false or not,one thing that is certain,has been that,God is a God of light,there is no darkness in him,he revealeth the deep and secret of things.Making an unsubstantiated accusation is a sin too.leave mata 4God.

  6. Well, there is no smoke without a fire but d burden of proof is upon d accuser. If anyone things Bola killed Audu, he should go to d law court with enough evidence to convince d court. For people who think its not possible for Tinubu to kill Abubakar, hmmmm, they are ignorant of d fact dat a criminal can commit a crime in Jerusalem and still go to Jerico to be seen in a CONSPICOUS event so as to escape justice

  7. Maxwell read very well before you comment I think. The dinner held on Friday not Saturday, and Late Audu left Lokoja on Friday to his home town at ogbonicha towards the evening of that Friday he started vomiting blood and his doctor transfused him which enable him cast his vote on Saturday the at his return to his house he started vomiting blood again which he was fainting and died early in the morning before the collation of election results and when the incident happened that Audu is dead TINUBU was called and he told them not to disclose it publicly yet that it might affect APC. NOW LOOKING AT THE SENERIO MR MAXWELL IF THE ELECTION WOULD HAVE BEEN CONCLUDED AND AUDU DECLARED WINNER AND IS NO MORE TO BE FOUND WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN THE GOVERNOR CONSTITUTIONALLY?, SQUEL TO THE SNARIO THERE IS A DEDUCTION THAT TINUBU THINK HE IS SMART AND CAN CONFUSE THE KOGITES, IGALA WITH THIS FIGHT OF POWER THUSLE. MR MAXWELL PLZ DONT BEHAVE LIKE THOSE WHO DONT READ AND START JUGMENT AND IF YOU READ TRY TO DEDUCE, SIMULATE AND EVALUATE WHAT YOU HAVE READ BEFORE COMMENT OK.
    MEDICALLY can cardiac arrest leads to vomit, or partial stroke leads to blood vomit? This vomit came shortly after the meeting/dinner with the APC chieftains and he returned to his home town at OGBONICHA and the condition was getting bad, logically as a medical scientist I will ask these following questions
    1. When was the last time he ate?
    2. What nature of food does he ate last?
    3. With which group of people did he share with?
    4. At which hotel or restorant do they lodge
    5.what nature of what did he took?
    7: who serve the food to them and was he present when the were dishing the food?
    The I will also ask questions on the scientific aspect of reactions of chemicals to the body and what nature of substances taken if there may be allergic reactions and if there is allergic react what level of damage can it cause to the body.
    What king of food did he take?
    Does he usually take such food?
    What combination did he take?
    What is the chemical content of the combinations taken?
    Could there be chemical synthesis defect and if there is what is the defect and what is the resultant damage it may cause?
    Then let’s look at these points on political issues
    What have been political pedagogy on the side of the people there?
    On whose interest is the people present there?
    What is the level of inter tribal / intra ethinic interest of the people present?
    What have been the duo character of the people around him.
    Having put these few points then we can narrow our point of findings to the terminal end of the case .
    But if is human that put perper into IGALA eyes, into KOGI youths eye, then that person have just touch the tail of the lion and he should wait to see the reaction of lion

    • To get all these information the body has to be available for autopsies, unfortunately the body is buried. Are you going to get the body off the grave to do this? What is the likelihood that the deceased was not suffering from gastrointestinal bleed considering the type of health care in Nigeria?

      Anybody can die anytime, but people needs to keep their nose clean.
      Politics should not be as dirty as it is in Nigeria
      It should be more of serving the citizens not the other way around.
      After all we will all die rich or poor.
      Politicians think about this!!!!

  8. You have DELT with IGALA not only Audu he has nothing to loose his children will be doing fine because he has saved for them, why can you let us have this little chance that IGALA only have since the democracy dispensation, IGALA have not known any benefits, Yoruba so tribalistic and nepotic, Hausa are not giving us chance , igbos have no chance to give us why are you fighting us ? This clearly show to us that Nigeria we are not one but for this singular act that your change is to kill IGALA poeple, let APC forget KOGI state except otherwise

  9. I believe there is no other name to call this writer except mad man. He said Tinubu didn’t allow them to announce Audu’s death until after the election. Does that suggest he had hands in his death? If somebody poisoned him, when and how? Who prepared the food they ate and where did they eat it? How many people ate the food?. People should stop this rubbish, we don’t want to hear it anymore. We don’t believe that anything can happen without influence anymore. If a man dies, he must have been killed by somebody else. What is our problem in this country? We read political meaning to everything that happens. Even, if somebody cannot feed his family, he will point accusing finger to his political foes. Enough of this pls.

  10. This’s just the handwork of PDP in order to cause a political discord within the APC..
    The question is would u be able to prove this allegation as they say ” he that goes to equity should go with clean hands?”

  11. This stupid mean is now saying pdp
    So now you are playing with the death of your gov candidate
    God will fight for the Man they killed and with all the supporters of evils in this country

  12. Well only God know what happened to Prince Audu. Let us not forget that Tinubu has been accused of having a hand in political killings. Remember Funsho: Williams & Bpla Ige.

  13. It would b unwise 4 anybody to think dat d Late Prince died a natural death. He was poisoned, nd who so ever did dat, has a lot 2 answer in d presence of God, its a Conspiracy, i dnt believe it ws done by an individual alone. Groups conspired 2 eliminate him, cos Prince has bin hated by so many politicians/traditional rulers in Kogi state. D can go to any extent to bring him down nd d went to dat xtent of poisonin him. How it happnd, i cnt tel, who did it i cnt tel bt i belived it ws a plannd mission. I cnt imagine Audu nt diein a month b4 election, a week b4 election, durin his campaign he didnt die, y must it durin d election he became ill? Nd nt just an ordinary sicknes dat’l cn b treated. Jst startd vomitin nd died hours later, na goat him b? It would b foolish 4 sm1 to tink dat he died witout bin poisond. Even his Nephew said it dat his uncle was poisoned. GOD will hold d asassinator(s) responsible even if we on earth cnt hold dm.

  14. Could Asiwaju have gone to Kogi to cook poisoned meal? Please be logical in your argument. It’s well with our party and leaders. RIP, great Audu

  15. its surprising that we cab be thinking this way pointing accusing finger on someone. if Tinubu had a dinner with him which is known by at least one person, I don’t think he would commit the crime openly like that. I’m not a killer but I know that if I want to kill someone, I won’t like to be seen with the person prior to his death bcos I will likely be the prime suspect.
    however, I quite agreed with the questions Mr maxwell raised that who serve the food, which hotel? don’t u think those hotel attendants can be instrument from the unknown killer.
    Pls. let’s reason this together rather than pointing accusing finger on an innocent man.

    • Then & Now.
      “EX-GOVERNOR AUDU RENDERS WIFE AND CHILDREN HOMELESS IN SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURE”

      Prince Abubabar Audu is a two-time governor of Kogi State and an All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) stalwart who has been accused of physically and verbally assaulting his wife, a former First Lady.

      THEWILL can also report that Prince Audu has abandoned this mother of three kids which includes a barely one month old baby in the United States of America without providing for them financially and otherwise.

      Many would remember Prince Abubakar Audu who allegedly looted his state’s treasury bare and only left the sum of N500, 000 for his successor as stated in a Nigerian newspaper, Sunday Sun, August 29, 2004. He was detained for misrule and theft of state funds and released on bail by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission when he left office.

      Audu’s wife, the former First Lady of Kogi State, Mrs. Aisha Audu recently filed papers at the District Court of Maryland, Montgomery County, seeking a Temporary Protective Order against Prince Audu, her husband of over 10 years, alleging that the former governor assaulted her severally.

      THEWILL learnt from family sources that the former governor and Mrs. Audu’s matrimonial problems started a few months back after Mrs. Audu refused to perform a ritual in the governor’s hometown in Kogi State, to denounce an allegation that she planned to poison the politician.

      The source said Prince Audu’s eldest daughter, Maimuna had told Prince Audu that a former domestic staff had informed her about Mrs. Audu’s plans to poison him. The former governor was said to have confronted his wife with the allegation, which according to our source, she perceived was a ploy to break their marriage and force her out of the family home.

      Prince Audu we gather is on the verge of taking a new wife.

      Considering the weight of the allegation against the former First Lady, our source said her family and Prince Audu’s deliberated severally on the matter which saw Prince Audu insisting that his then five month old pregnant wife would have to walk over the former governor’s father’s grave naked and perform some rituals to convince him that she had made no plans to kill him.

      Mrs. Audu and her family, according to our source opted to swear by the Quran to prove she had made no such plan, but the families failed to reach a compromise on this.

      THEWILL was informed by another family source that Habiba, an ex-wife of Prince Audu, who died in London sometime in 2007 allegedly went through the same ordeal and became severely sick after she was made to perform the fetish act at the supervision of a witch doctor. She was then forced out of their home by the former governor and did not recover from the strange ailment until she died in a London hospital.

      Mrs. Aisha Audu has refused to be lured into performing the same voodoo. They are currently enmeshed in a bitter legal battle that may become a reference point for many Nigerian thieving politicians with real estate assets abroad often acquired with looted funds from government coffers.

      According to court papers dated May 19, 2010, exclusively obtained by THEWILL, Mrs. Audu told Judge Dennis Michael Mchugh that Abubakar Audu physically assaulted her during their last Christmas and New Year holiday at the Audu’s $1.7 million dollar family mansion in posh Potomac, Maryland and sometime in March 2010 in Nigeria .

      She also alleged that Prince Audu threatened to cause her serious bodily harm and verbally abused her and the kids, which caused her to seek the court’s protection.

      “The abuse started in December ‘09 during the Christmas vacation at the above address. We had arguments over issues of where to have my baby because I was already over 16 weeks pregnant and also on issues of where the kids will school since they will have to be with me if I am having the baby here because I already started anti-natal with my GP,” Mrs. Audu wrote in her petition to the court.

      Continuing, she said; “The violence continued, he got physical by hitting, slapping, punching, throwing things at me and abusing me and the kids verbally in front of others including my step children….”

      “On getting to Nigeria, things escalated and he threatened to eliminate me by all means wherever I go. He had refused to continue paying the children’s school fees while school is still on. He then eventually locked me and the kids out of the house and I was left with no option but to return to our Glen Road residence because I was lucky to have our passports in a safe place,” the former First Lady wrote.

      “Am still afraid of my life and since he has continued to abuse and threatening me; he even used his political thugs and his other children to make life hostile and frustrating for us which started affecting my pregnancy badly. He vowed to eliminate me before the baby is born…” she further alleged.

      Judge Mchugh, and Judge Stephen Johnson in obliging Mrs. Audu’s request for protection from her abusive husband, ordered as follows;

      1. That the Respondent (Abubakar Audu) SHALL NOT abuse, threaten to abuse and/or harass Aisha Audu.

      2. That the Respondent SHALL NOT contact (in person, by telephone, in writing or by any other means) or attempt to contact Aisha Audu.

      3. That custody of Abubakar Suleman Audu JR (01/30/01), Shazali MOHD Audu (11/10/02) is awarded Aisha Audu until the hearing provided in paragraph 4 below.

      On May 26, 2010, Judge William Graves Simmons, of the same court extended the Temporary Protective Order to July 09, 2010, ordering as follows;

      1. That the Respondent (Abubakar Audu) SHALL NOT enter the residence of Aisha Audu at 12301 Glen Road Potomac, MD 20854.

      2. That the Respondent SHALL VACATE the home immediately (home included yard, grounds, outbuildings, and common areas surrounding the dwelling) at 12301 Glen Road, Potomac, MD 20854 and remain away until hearing provided for below. Temporary use and possession of the home is to be granted Aisha Audu.

      A final hearing was slated for June 09, 2010.

      The new ruling thus barred Prince Audu from going near the family home located at 12301 Glen Road, Potomac, MD 20854 which Prince Audu paid cash for in 2001, a few months after he was sworn in as governor of the Confluence State.

      A source told THEWILL that after the court order was served on Prince Abubakar Audu, he immediately moved to throw his kids and wife out of the Glen road mansion with the backing of his controversial daughter, Maimuna.

      He hired a law firm by the name Rismiller Law Group, LLC of Rockville, Maryland to appeal the section of the restraining order which gave Mrs. Audu and the kids temporary custody of the their Potomac home.

      Ms. Maimuna Audu (35), who still lives with her father flew in from Nigeria to represent the former governor and his firm, Gold Window. She led the onslaught to evict her siblings and father’s wife.

      Prince Audu and his lawyers then came up with a plan. They averred that the Glen road mansion is not a family home but a company property belonging to Gold Window LLC. They added that the Audu’s sought the permission of Gold Window LLC to use the property for their Christmas and New Year holiday. The lawyers said the company wanted to take back possession of the mansion.

      But THEWILL search at the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation, Montgomery County, of the Glen Road mansion history revealed that Prince Abubakar Audu purchased in cash, the two-storey mansion in his name from Par Development, LC for $1,719,954 on March 15, 2001. On April 22, 2001, he transferred (Sold) the mansion for $1.00 (One dollar) to Belside Properties, LLC, a company allegedly registered to himself and his first son, Aliyu. Belside Properties was later acquired by Gold Window LLC, another company registered to Abububakar Audu and his son, Aliyu. Both father and son are currently not on speaking terms after Abubakar Audu evicted Aliyu from the same property a few years back after they had a brawl.

      In fact, THEWILL recalls that when the news broke that Prince Audu had acquired the mansion during his tenure as governor, after several denials, he acknowledged that the property was his and his representatives and spokespersons admitted same.

      On June 09, 2010, Prince Audu’s lawyers filed a motion in court to modify the restraining order while Mrs. Audu had just been delivered of a baby girl. The court granted their request and “Ordered, that Gold Window, LLC’s motion to modify the Protective Order be and the same hereby is granted, and it is further-

      “Ordered, that the Temporary Protective Order granted on May 26, 2010 in the above captioned matter be and the same hereby modified, and it is further-

      “Ordered, that the petitioner (Aisha Audu) shall not have temporary use of the possession of the real property located at 12301 Glen Road, Potomac, Maryland 20854, which is owned by Gold Window, LLC.”

      A letter obtained by THEWILL showed that after the Order was made, Prince Audu’s lawyers wrote a letter dated same day, June 09, 2010, to Mrs. Aisha Audu, part of which reads; “The firm has been retained by Gold Window LLC, to represent its interest related to real property located at 12301 Glen Road, Potomac, MD 20854. I have enclosed herein the order issued today…directing that you “shall not have temporary use and possession of the real property located at ………

      “On behalf of Gold Window, LLC, I am herein respectfully demanding that you vacate the Residence immediately. I am advised that you have taken possession of the residence and that you have altered the locks of the Residence…

      “Further, you are herein directed to immediately surrender to Bob Healey, as an authorized representative of Gold Window, LLC, the keys to the Residence…”Prince Audu’s lawyers wrote.

      THEWILL further learnt that Mrs. Audu through her lawyers sought audience with the Judge where they put forward an argument that she had just been discharged from the hospital after childbirth insisting that the Glen Road mansion is indeed their family home. After several back and forth deliberations between all parties, Mrs. Aisha Audu was told that if she chooses to reside in the property, she would have to pay $4000 (four thousand dollars) as monthly rent. She agreed and has since paid $8000 in rent to Prince Audu Abubakar for the two months of July and August.

I have enclosed herein the order issued today…directing that you “shall not have temporary use and possession of the real property located at ………

    “On behalf of Gold Window, LLC, I am herein respectfully demanding that you vacate the Residence immediately. I am advised that you have taken possession of the residence and that you have altered the locks of the Residence…

    “Further, you are herein directed to immediately surrender to Bob Healey, as an authorized representative of Gold Window, LLC, the keys to the Residence…”Prince Audu’s lawyers wrote.

    THEWILL further learnt that Mrs. Audu through her lawyers sought audience with the Judge where they put forward an argument that she had just been discharged from the hospital after childbirth insisting that the Glen Road mansion is indeed their family home. After several back and forth deliberations between all parties, Mrs. Aisha Audu was told that if she chooses to reside in the property, she would have to pay $4000 (four thousand dollars) as monthly rent. She agreed and has since paid $8000 in rent to Prince Audu Abubakar for the two months of July and August.

  17. Our Igala people make one adage that says and I quote ” look at where the horse leg pass and look at a dead body of a child laid ” so it Tinubu or who ever , death is is death Audu had gone to rest , In Islam , if you kill your fellow human being his/ her sin will be add to your own sin and if you not a sinner then automatically you are a sinner . I saw so many comment on call for . God who brought Audu will still bring another Igala son to take over .InsaALLAH .

  18. Anyone who does not see conspiracy here is foolish. Even before this speculation, the possibility should have been clear that Tinubu stands to gain from the elimination of audu so that his boy faleke would become governor. What they are saying is that an autopsy should be done on audu. If he did not die of natural causes, then those that were with him and especially ate with him should suspects.

  19. Politics in Nigeria is a very dirty game. These politician think that they are givers and takers of life. They should take it easy. The world belongs to no one. RIP to the dead. God knows best.

    The above comment was not made by me; though harmless. But which Bertram made it?

  20. Tinubu thing is a suspect. that man is a devil. I wish all dis corrupt and bad things that call themselves old political fools can just go mud so that good people can just take over. when evil man are on throne the country will be in a doom, corruption will not seize to reign.

  21. Kogi igala kingdom not yoroba kingdom, u try as mores as u can do so dat minority pple like yoroba to rules us. U pple knew all dat we can do, we are ready fight a war. We no even need yoroba as our deptygovernor again
