Captives on board ship

Oyeladun - On the ship

At first there was much room in the space under the floor yet we were chained together. We soon found out why. Through the holes in the walls we could see the coast and sometimes the ship stopped to collect more people like us. Very soon there was no room to move with so many women and children. Then the land disappeared as we moved in the direction of the setting Sun. Then the crying and heat and smell got worse.
