The jihadi handed himself in after claiming he had 'reformed' in Turkey
The 24-year-old – known as Kevin G – was one of the UN’s most wanted ISIS terrorists as it is believed he recruited French youth to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
He is also suspected of having had links to the terrorists who carried out the Paris attacks in November 2015, in which 130 people were killed.
A French national, Kevin G converted to Islam at 14 and reportedly moved to Syria four years ago to join ISIS.
Kevin G settled in Syria with his four French wives and their six children.
The terrorist was linked to the shooters of the Paris November 2015 attacks
A report from France 24 said: "He spent four years in Syria amongst jihadists, first with former al-Qaeda affiliate the Fateh al-Sham Front, and then the IS group."
But after fleeing ISIS and travelling to Turkey, Kevin G handed himself in to authorities, claiming he is a changed man.
He has now been deported from Turkey and transferred to France under an international arrest warrant.
The accused terrorist has been charged with association with a criminal terror organisation and financing terrorism.
The bataclan ISIS attacks left 130 dead
French authorities must decide if Kevin G is in fact reformed or possibly a terrorist seeking to return to Europe to carry out attacks.
