BUFFALO, N.Y. ( WKBW ) A Liberian warlord living in the Rochester area now has to answer to unspeakable crimes he allegedly committed in his home country in the 1990's.

Sixty-two year old George Boley had been living in the Village of Hilton in Monroe County until witnesses from Liberia told U.S. Officials Boyle ordered the killing of women and children in barbaric ways.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement held a press conference Friday announcing that Boyle had officially arrived in Liberia that afternoon.

Boyle was the former leader of the Liberian Peace Council. During the Liberian Civil War in the 1990's he is accused of ordering the killing of his own soldiers, some of them children. Other witnesses say his army massacred dozens of villagers, ordering them to lie down before they slit their throats with swords. Women were raped before they were killed.

Boyle also reportedly presided over the burning of Liberians he accused of witchcraft. He is the first person ever deported from the U.S. based on the Child Soldiers Accountability Act of 2008.
