The second member of ISIS's notorious 'Beatles' prison guards has been identified as a West Londoner who once went on a Gaza aid convoy organised by George Galloway.

Alexanda Kotey, 32, from Shepherd's Bush, tormented foreign prisoners in ISIS-held territory in Syria, according an investigation by Buzzfeed and Washington Post. 

Kotey, a father of two children, converted to Islam in his early twenties after being in a relationship with a Muslim woman.

It has been claimed that Kotey used to regularly attend the al-Manaar mosque in Ladbroke Grove along with Mohammed Emwazi, better known as Jihadi John.

They were both part of the 'London boys', a group of young radical Muslim extremists, predominantly from West London.

Alongside fellow London Boys member Reza Afsharzadegan, an Iranian-born IT student from the Ladbroke grove area, Kotey travelled to Gaza as part of an aid convoy led by Galloway in 2009.

'There was, of course, a vetting procedure on those who applied to join the convoy,a spokesman for George Galloway said, before saying 'the names you have given are unknown to us.'

Kotey, who is half Ghanaian, half Greek Cypriot, is thought to have travelled to the ISIS-held city of Raqqa, where he is believed to have become one of the four prison guards known as the Beatles.

It is unclear if Kotey was the guard nicknamed 'Ringo' or 'George' although it was believed that someone claiming to be Ringo wrote on an Ask.Fm forum page that he was a QPR fan from Shepherd's Bush.

Neighbours said the Alexanda Kotey, known to his friends as Alexe, was a 'reserved, polite boy,' who was once a supporter of his local football side Queens Park Rangers.
