2 Quiboloy aides surrender; pastor’s manhunt continues

TWO PERSONAL assistants of Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) leader Pastor Apollo Quiboloy surrendered to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in Davao City on Thursday, April 4. 

Ingrid Canada and Jackielyn Roy appeared before the NBI-Southeastern Mindanao Regional Office (NBI-Semro) at 9 a.m. and posted bail of P80,000 each at the Regional Trial Court Branch 12.

“They were released from our custody after processing,” confirmed NBI 11 Director Lawyer Archie Albao.

Their surrender brought the total number of Quiboloy associates facing child abuse charges to five who have submitted to authorities. The others are Cresente Canada, arrested on April 2, Paulene Canada, and Sylvia Cemañes, both surrendered later that afternoon. All five were able to post bail.

Pastor Quiboloy remains at large. A joint operation by the NBI, Police Regional Office (PRO) XI, and the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) XI served warrants at the Tamayong Prayer Mountain and other locations in Davao City and Samal Island on April 4. 

While Quiboloy wasn’t around, authorities confirmed that his lawyer received the warrant.

“The manhunt continues,” said PRO XI director Brig. Gen. Alden Delvo. “We assure full cooperation with law enforcement agencies to apprehend Pastor Quiboloy.”

NBI XI to negotiate with Quiboloy’s camp

Meanwhile, NBI officials will negotiate with the camp of Pastor Quiboloy for a peaceful surrender to the authorities.

NBI XI regional director Atty. Arcelito Albao said they are in contact with the religious leader’s legal counsel so that he can surrender peacefully. But Pastor Quiboloy’s camp has yet to respond to their request.

Albao insisted that joint operatives will continue to search for the said religious leader until the 10 days stipulated by law have not lapsed.
