When we got to Hastings we attacked Hastings, we cleared up Hastings and we advanced to Jui because Jui is just very close to Freetown. The distance between Jui and Freetown is short. But when we got to Jui we did not - we did not overrun Jui and so we got stuck there, so we got orders from Issa Sesay and he told us that when we got to Jui there was another road that was passing through Kossoh Town to Freetown and so we should release some men, up to a platoon or a battalion, to join our brothers in Freetown whilst we should try and clear up the main road. The order came from the back from Issa Sesay directly to Rambo, RUF Rambo.
