"Gaddafi wasn't scared, but he didn't seem to know what to do," said Huniesh Nasr.
According to Mansour Iddhow, former head of Libya's homeland security, Gaddafi had no plans to escape the country.
"I advised him to leave because it was a small city and could easily be blocked. It was like a room, with nowhere to go. Staying was suicide. But Gaddafi did not listen to us," he said.
Mansur Dao, Gaddafi's bodyguard said that his sons were in charge of the battle and not the slain dictator.
"We were scared of the airstrikes and the shelling," Dao said.
Muammar Gaddafi was killed on the outskirts of Sirte after he was captured on October 20, 2011.
