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!

Anders Behring Breivik

On the 22nd July, Anders Behring Breivik set off a car bomb in Oslo and then set off to the Norweigan island of Utoya where he set about indisciminately murdering teenage boys and girls attending a summer camp. He hunted them down like animals, shooting several in the water with a high powered rifle as they tried to swim to safety.

Breivik doesn't deny this. Indeed he is proud of it. Before he set about his murder spree, he published a 1500 page hate manifesto on the internet. He regards his court appearances as opportuinites to spread more of his right wing Christian fundamentalist hate philiosophy.

He says he did it to highlight the dangers of Muslim fundamentalism to the white community. The truth is that he did it because he is a mad man.

He murdered the very people he says he wants to protect. He must be condemned to hell and never be forgiven or forgotten. There can be no possible justification for what he has done.

Anthony Harrison

At Woolwich Crown Court, Anthony Harrison  was sentenced to 20 years for four trafficking offences as well as two of false imprisonment. He is the first man to be convicted of trafficking females out of the UK, in a case involving two Nigerian girls

The teenage victims alleged they were subjected to witchcraft and violence. Judge Philip Shorrock said the sentence was being imposed "to deter others who are tempted by this terrible trade" and "to reflect public disgust".

Harrison imprisoned both girls - aged 14 and 16 - at his home in Albert Square, Stratford, in 2009, before attempting to traffic them to Spain and Greece as prostitutes. The two had been controlled by Juju magic rituals, the court was told.

Both girls came from small villages in Edo, Nigeria, and were sold into prostitution with the help of the local Juju priest.

He's an Africa, so he's used to the heat. You'd better make the oven extra hot for this one!
