Joshua Milton Blahyi

Joshua Milton Blahyi also known as General Butt Naked used to be the leader for the Liberian ruler Roosevelt Johnson during the first Civil war in Liberia.  He was a former tribal priest but later converted to Christianity.

Blahyi is a member of the Sarpo tribe he claims that he became a tribal priest and performed his first human sacrifice when he was just 11.  He also said that he had a vision of the Devil telling him that he would become a great warrior if he continues on sacrificing human and committing cannibalism.  The Devil said that the process would increase his power.

Blahyi is known for leading his troops naked wearing only his shoes and carrying his guns.  Before engaging into a battle, he was said to perform a human sacrifice that involves a kid.  He said:
  "Usually it was a small child, someone whose fresh blood would satisfy the devil... Sometimes I would enter under the water where children were playing. I would dive under the water, grab one, carry him under and break his neck. Sometimes I'd cause accidents. Sometimes I'd just slaughter them.”

Later in January of 2008, he confessed in participating in human sacrifices that involves murdering an innocent kid, cutting their hearts out and dividing it to several smaller pieces which will distributed among his troops.

He told a South African newspaper that he would often met Satan and have a talk with him.  He also told them about his rituals before participating in the battle. 

 "So, before leading my troops into battle, we would get drunk and drugged up, sacrifice a local teenager, drink the blood, then strip down to our shoes and go into battle wearing colorful wigs and carrying imaginary purses we'd looted from civilians. We'd slaughter anyone we saw, chop their heads off and use them as soccer balls. We were nude, fearless, drunk yet strategic. We killed hundreds of people--so many I lost count.”

He also said that during those periods, he possessed a special power that enabled him to conquer a town single handedly.  He then supposedly called his man to clean up the mess.  Blahyi and his men would often engage in the battle naked believing that it is a protection from the bullets.
