As per accounts, the leader of the gang met his demise when city dwellers collaborated with law enforcement to confront both him and his accomplices.

Shortly after the group was eradicated, the locals proceeded to ignite their corpses. Additionally, they set fire to the dwelling of the gang leader.

Likewise, the advancements occur amidst a caution issued by another gang leader, Jimmy Chérizier, known as “Barbecue,” to Kenyan military and law enforcement before their deployment.

Barbecue asserted that he would perceive the Kenyan police as hostile forces and intruders, affirming his steadfast refusal to yield, as he perceived their arrival as a threat to Haiti’s sovereignty.

“We will consider them as invaders and we do not have to collaborate with any invaders that have come to walk over our independence,” Barbecue warned.
