Kotey fled to Syria in 2012 and, along with Mohammed Emwazi – known as Jihadi John – El Shafee Elsheikh, and Aine Davis, became part of the notorious ISIS terrorist gang dubbed “the Beatles” because of their British accents.
The group is thought to have killed at least seven hostages, plus 27 Syrian soldiers.
Kotey, who was raised in Ladbroke Grove, West London, claims he “hit the streets with a vengeance” when he left school, apparently blaming his background for his conversion to extremism.
During a chilling interview, Kotey claimed he had a new-found cynicism towards ISIS but said he was “grateful” for his time in the group because it led to his union with a jihadi bride.
The former petty crook also admitted physically tormenting western prisoners before his pal Jihadi John beheaded them.
Kotey, who trained as a “sniper” before he joined an elite Pretorian Guard did, however, regret the conditions the prisoners were kept in.
