They left us there. We stayed there. But after one hour or so they returned, running, and we saw that man. He was shot on his shoulder and blood was oozing from it. And when they came they said it was not the ECOMOG who were in Koidu Town, it was the juntas and the rebels. So that was why we left Wendadu again and went to Penduma. That was the way leading to Kokuima and we reached in Penduma. That was where we rested, under a mango tree, my children and I. We met some other civilians who had gone there who were resting there. They were many as well.
