During Liberia’s first bloody civil war, Joshua Milton Blahyi - aka General Butt Naked - was the nation’s most feared warlord. It is estimated that he is responsible for the deaths of at least 20,000 people, lives he destroyed as he raped and ravaged his way through Liberia using human sacrifice and cannibalism to give him and his army of child soldiers “divine” strength. In this episode, Suruthi and Hannah follow the trail of destruction created by Blahyi, and ask can a man once dubbed “the most evil man in the world” really change?
