Well, one concept that was established to us about the vanguards was that the vanguards were people who were trained at a base in Liberia and the base was called Sokoto. And they used to call that same place Camp Naama. So whosoever trained at Sokoto, Camp Naama, and crossed into Sierra Leone, fighting, all of them were known as the vanguards. That is to the best of my knowledge. And what Mosquito, Rebel King, CO Cyrus, original who captured me, and others, what they used to say was that. And those people, the vanguards, we remain to respect them and regard them as the founding fathers throughout the war. They were the founding fathers of the RUF.
