Tragedy struck Friday evening when six persons from the same family, a six-year-old child and a mechanic were burnt to death in a fatal accident that occurred near Kekeshi village, along Abaji-Toto road. About 20 other persons, including two children, sustained injuries and were rushed to the Abaji General Hospital. A witness said the accident happened when a Volkswagen Golf car collided with an oncoming Toyota Hiace bus, which caught fire and consumed eight persons. A mechanic who was test driving the Golf car after repairs reportedly made a sudden u-turn at the centre of the road and collided with the oncoming bus, which burst into flames. The eight burnt corpses were buried in a mass grave by the accident scene after relatives identified them.
