The G9 Family and Allies gang has seized Joseph ‘Kiki’ Obed and handed him over to the police, according to Panel Magik.

Obed is suspected of getting girlfriend Evelyne Sincère drunk and setting her up to get kidnapped and murdered. When found at a garbage dump Sunday, the high schooler appears to have been sexually assaulted and severely beaten.

Police then began to look for Obed for questioning. The police tracked Obed’s movement through a phone call he had on Tuesday with Radio Mega. He denied setting up Sincère during the call. Authorities said the phone trace revealed that Obed was in an area where G9 gang members reside.

The G9 then captured Obed. During a Facebook Live Wednesday night, G9’s leader Jimmy “Barbecue” Cherisier with Obed, both denied that G9 was involved. G9 then handed over Obed to the police.
