“That means they had always targeted him. I’m so hurt because he’s my children’s uncle. He used to take care of us as a family.
“He made sure we have food to eat and we have clothes to wear. I’m so hurt I can’t even sleep properly at night. Even his nephew can’t sleep properly at night. He even asks me where his uncle is.
“This thing also hurts them so much. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the pain.”
