Story relating to amputation


The rebels ordered me and my junior brother to open the door to the house. They threatened that if we fail to do so they will set the house on fire. When we opened the door, they demanded four hundred thousand leones from us. We told them we do not have any money. As a result, we were thoroughly beaten up. One of them said he knew both of us. I was dragged and amputated.
