Story relating to amputation


The AFRC renegade soldiers and RUF rebels invaded our village, Koindenbaya in the morning and started burning houses and killing people. I was amputated along with eight others. I was then taken to capital Freetown on 6 January 1996 when the AFRC and RUF rebels invaded the city, where I lost my eighteen month old baby.
