The Daily Voice understands that the Hawks investigated Modack for the murder of the anti-gang unit commander, who was gunned down outside his home in Bishop Lavis on September 18 last year.

Kinnear had investigated Modack’s alleged role in an underworld battle to control Cape Town’s nightclub security industry.

“A general from Pretoria was brought here to be part of the sting and all members of the task force were in formal attire and they picked him up after he left a car dealership on Thursday afternoon. They must have had a tail on him, ”a source told the Daily Voice.

“They blocked the whole area because they arrested Modack and we heard others were being arrested with him, but they are very quiet about the charges.

During his bail hearing, the court heard that Kilian revealed the identity of the person who hired him, known as “Mr. X ”, to the Hawks.

However, in an affidavit, Kilian denied this, saying he only knew the person who hired him as “Mohammed”.
