Story relating to amputation


I lived in Niagorehun at the time. I remember on that fateful day, I went to the bush to search for food. At about 12 midnight, we retired into rooms not knowing the rebels had surrounded the village. They started banging at our doors and windows ordering us to come out. I was manhandled and treated like a beast for attempting to flee. A small boy carrying three matches came up to me and cut off the fingers on my right hand and then stabbed me all over my body.
