University students from Jalingo, were involved in a ghastly motor accident at Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on their way to school from Jalingo yesterday, Friday, November 2nd, 2018.
One of the buses got burnt to ashes, roasting three of the students.
According to a source who spoke to us with condition of anonymity, he identified the students who died as Kerry Oliver (200L), Christable (200L, OPT) and Rita (200L, OPT).
Students who were rushed to the hospital were identified as Stanley (400L, MLS), Chidima Nwosu (200L, OPT), Divine (100L, EE).
A student who was in the other bus the moment the accident happened wrote: “One of my buses we chattered from Taraba state, containing only Madonna students (we chartered 2 buses) had an accident today around 6:PM, the bus somersaulted and caught fire immediately, the bus burnt beyond recognition, student were burnt inside the bus alive. 3 students were burnt to death beyond recognition (2 girls, 1 boy), 3 students managed to come out, but 1 broke her leg and head.
They were immediately rushed to the hospital (and they are all unconscious).
The buses contained 12 students (6 students in each bus, containing the driver, 7 people). It all happened in Ebonyi State, Abakiliki. (I don’t know the state of the driver, whether he survived or not.).
Currently I am in one police station in Abakalili, can’t travel again this night, I was actually in the bus in the beginning but later I changed to the other bus. (Thank God.) 5 girls and I’m the only boy in the second bus. We are all madonna students)
