The family had attended the matriculation ceremony at the Ebonyi State University (EBSU) – only to get burnt beyond recognition same day.

While six off the victims said to be from the same family were burnt to death in a bus they were traveling in, two others were also killed from bullet wounds they sustained from the attacks.

The attack reportedly happened along the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike road near the border between the two communities.

Police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah confirmed the incident.
