Story relating to amputation

 

When the rebels attacked our village they were resisted by the Kamajor, CDF. The latter were overpowered and had to withdraw leaving us at the mercy of the rebels. We were pulled out of our houses. I was dragged to rebel base where they threatened to kill me. I pleaded with them to spear my life. I was taken to a newly burnt house where my back was marked, one hand chopped off and the other had some of the fingers removed. I was taken to the hospital in Kenema after they had left.
