Name of war dead: Titi Kamara

According to Salamatu Kamara of Pademba Road in Freetown her sister Titi Kamra was hit by a shrapnel from a bomb on 6 January 1996 when the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) renegade soldiers and the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) rebels invaded the capital Freetown months after they were removed from power by the Economic Community of West African States Monitoring Group (ECOMOG).

Titi was breastfeeding her son at her residence on Pademba Road in Freetown at the time when she was hit by a shrapnel from a bomb. She died on the spot while her son survived with a fragment lodged in his body. The child has been in the custody of Titi’s sister, Salamatu Kamara since then.
