“On the day that incident happened, it was my younger sister who called and when I answered the phone, she narrated everything to me. She told me how they hid under the bed, while gunshots were sounding everywhere.

“Since my dad’s demise, anytime I sleep, even if it’s a 30 minutes nap, I see myself in a dream battling with bandits or herdsmen. Now, I have even become used to it because it hit me so hard. I am the only son and have to take care of three grown women (sisters and mum).

Anytime I look around and see that my dad is not around, it makes me feel very miserable. But, prayers have been keeping me strong. Anytime I feel ‘down’, I talk to God and I beg Him to give me strength because I have to stay alive and strong for my mother and sisters.”
