You see, Sam Bockarie, Abu Keita, Superman, I, Jungle, we were in the same group. The bodyguards, we just used to exchange them. I got to know about the death of Jungle when Ben sent for me from Singe. He said, "An enemy has killed Jungle, so they want you to go there."

Then the superintendent of Nimba County announced over the radio that enemies were advancing in Vahun. I was worried.
