A Muslim man by the name Tajudeen, who tried to salvage the situation, rushed in and was able to use his car to carry the unconscious Christian student to the hospital.
This infuriated the Muslim students who then went to Tajudeen's house and burnt it down, killing eight occupants in his house.
The state governor, Abdulaziz Yari, joined hundreds of others to bury the deceased who were killed in the inferno.
Meanwhile a 12-hour curfew in the community starting from 7p.m. to 7a.m. daily has been imposed by the police.
