The police confirmed that he had been taken into pre-trial detention after he had previously appeared in court.

He was locally mentioned as Romulo Rodrigues da Costa, the brother or sister of well-known jihadists Celso and Edgar who, according to the Portuguese press, were killed several months ago in the battle in Syria.

Respected Portuguese weekly Expresso said he had worked in London with two different identities, one a music producer and the other an ISIS recruiter.

Reema and Zara Iqbal are said to have been part of a five-fold, fully female terror cell that traveled with their husbands from East London to Syria in 2013.

Celso and Edgar were allegedly radicalized in London after traveling to Britain to make a career as a professional football player.

Former salesperson of Harrods Celso, who claimed to have had a lawsuit with Arsenal, appeared in an ISIS propaganda film in which he bragged about celebrating the Eid al-Adha Muslim festival by slaughtering unbelievers.

The two gentlemen born in Portugal left to ISIS militant Jihadi John, killed by a drone attack in November 2015, were well documented.

It was revealed in March that their wives had been stripped of their British citizenship.
