General Butt Naked

Joshua Milton Blahyi - better known by his nom-de-guerre General Butt Naked - was a brutal and merciless warlord during the civil war in Liberia. He got his nickname by fighting naked except for his ammo belt and boots.

During Liberia's 14 years of civil war, the man became known as one of the most inhumane and ruthless guerrilla leaders in Africa's history. After the former General Butt Naked confessed his past to Liberia's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in 2008, one internet blogger asked: 'Is this the most evil man who ever lived?'

His crimes included child sacrifice, cannibalism, the exploitation of child soldiers and trading blood diamonds for guns and cocaine, which he fed to boy soldiers as young as nine.

Now he claims to have found God and the BBC is broadcasting a documentary entitled "The Redemption of General Butt Naked" Having spent 14 years holding nightly conversations with the devil, he had a blinding vision of Christ who told him to end the killings and convert. He is now married, a father of three and lives as a Christian preacher.

He comments "I could be electrocuted. I could be hanged. I could be given any other punishment, but I think forgiveness and reconciliation is the right way to go."

Let's face it, given the choice of hanging or electrocution, I think I'd rather be forgiven as well but I reckon a place in Old Nick's oven would be more appropriate!

General Butt Naked : I nominate this evil bastard because nobody should be forgiven for killing over 20,000 human beings. Not even the president.
