When he came, they surrounded us. Then he looked at the man - he looked at my brother. Then he said this man resembles the former President of Liberia, that is Samuel K Doe, and that his boss Peleto, his boss Peleto, had sent them to take along human finger and that he had seen my brother and he should cut off his fingers. After saying that, I said, "No, instead of cutting off that man's finger it would be better for you to kill me." I said this because I had started receiving pains, so even if I die he will stay with the family. He told me that, "Mister, you do not know what you are saying." He said I did not know what I was talking about.
We all sat down. We had a log, a short log. That was what we used to sit on. He took that. He was the one who took it and put it down and grabbed my brother in front of me, Mr Kotay and Mr Samuel Conteh. Then all of us cried. They did not even feel sorry for us. They put the man's finger on the log and cut it off.
Then my brother came to me and said, "Hey, Pa Sheriff, I have come to die for you." They cut off all his ten fingers. When they finished they took those ten fingers and they said Peleto was going to make a chain out of it. Oh, Father God. When they put the fingers in the cup then they shot him. They shot him and he died on the spot and they went. Then by 6 to 7 o'clock - God will pay the promoters of these rebels in Sierra Leone. I am an innocent man. My brother was an innocent man. But now we are suffering. We suffered for nothing. God will bring judgment upon the promoters in this country. All those who promoted the rebels in Sierra Leone, those who have caused our suffering today, we have more responsibilities now. God will bring judgment upon them.
We buried the man there. We buried him. That night we escaped from that bush, so - I want to drink water.
