121. The Ndorgboryosoi rebellion ended only after the Army had been called in to assist the SSD in suppressing the militia. The hostile sentiments against the APC regime endured for much longer, though. Some of the Ndorgboryosoi ring-leaders and their family members were among the first militiamen to join the RUF when it entered Pujehun District from Liberia in 1991. They formed a civil defence unit of the RUF called the Joso Group, deliberately invoking part of the word Ndorgboryosoi in its name to represent continuity.

122. Pujehun District was thus replete with historical antecedents to the conflict, including several periods of mass unrest, which provoked repression and deprivation from the State in response. The District had a well-known history of rebellion, a large pool of exiled and aggrieved youths in Liberia and, ultimately, a volatile security climate. As Foday Sankoh and his RUF vanguards plotted their entry into Sierra Leone in March 1991, Pujehun District had the vital characteristics of a gateway through which the launch of an insurgency against the incumbent APC would meet with ideological support and find willing recruits.
