We used to get food in two different ways. The food that we got from Liberia was not sufficient for us, so we take the particular mission we referred to as food finding mission. Sometimes we go to a civilian zone and attack the civilians, arrest them. Some will die. We burnt their houses, we took their food and give them to carry and bring that to our base. Sometimes we will set an ambush. Any time food will be moving from Freetown for ECOMOG we will set ambush for that. Any civilian vehicle moving from Freetown with food we will ambush that, we will take it, then we will burn down the vehicles. That was how we got food.
