“They didn’t beat me. There were days that there was no food. Those days they drank garri and gave me garri to drink too”.
“Sometimes, they cooked soup, prepare garri and we ate. But on Sunday, they told me we had stayed for too long and they were tired of our problem”.
“They carried us on a flying boat and dropped us in a village. I don’t know the name of the village. The carried us to their chairman place. I don’t even know the man. They called Seifa and Seifa came”.
