A Nigerian, David Anyaele who lost both hands during the Sierra Leone-Liberia war, recounts the events that led to the war and the treatments of Nigerians by former Liberia President, Charles Taylor.

Mr Anyaele who spoke as a guest in Diplomatic Channels – A Channels Television programme, said that while he begged the rebels to spare his hands, the rebels insisted on chopping off both of his hands saying “it is only when the Nigerian government sees my two hands chopped off that they will know that we are serious.”
