Savien Robert Zoulemati, 25, father of a week-old baby, from Yakidi village, near by Ippy. “Because me don’t have money, we went hunting. We were a group of five. After the hunt, we came back to the camp, fixed dinner and get some rest. I was lying down when heavily armed Peuhls (Fulanis) attacked us. They came by the river to not be noticed and started shooting at us. My four companions escaped and I got the bullets, one broke my arm, the second went through my hip, the third wounded my right leg. They took us by surprise, hence it was difficult to know how many they were. My companions had abandoned me and I was left with no help. I held my broken arm to my chest. It took me a lot of energy to get head back to the village, I vomited and bled, I was tired, worn out. My hunting companions had alerted the village and by the evening, my parents came to look for me and bring me back home on their bicycle. Peuhls attack us because they see us as FPRC and anti-balaka.”
