  • Police to serve arrest warrant vs Quiboloy, five others 


THE DAVAO City Police Office continues to hunt down Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) leader Pastor Apollo Quiboloy and five associates after the arrest warrant was released on April 11 by the Pasig Regional Trial Court for the non-bailable case of qualified human trafficking.

DCPO spokesperson Captain Hazel Tuazon confirmed ongoing efforts to locate Quiboloy and his five associates: Jackielyn Roy, Cresente Canada, Paulene Canada, Ingrid Canada, and Sylvia Cemanes.

During the  AFP-PNP press briefing held at The Royal Mandaya Hotel, Tuazon said the five other respondents earlier surrendered to the NBI. However, they were nowhere to be found when the police tried serving the warrant on their addresses.

The tracker teams comprised of personnel from Calinan and Sasa police stations, DCPO-CIDG, PRO-11, and NBI Region 11 are actively searching for the accused. She acknowledged the challenges in locating Quiboloy due to his resources and network.

Quiboloy’s camp reportedly requested a transfer of the case from Pasig to Davao City, but the outcome of this request remains unclear.

“Our job is to ensure the safe apprehension of the accused within our jurisdiction,” Tuazon stated. “The search continues as this is a non-bailable offense.”

She emphasized that the search will continue until the 10-day period for the alias warrants lapses.

Tuazon warned anyone harboring the accused of facing obstruction of justice charges. “If identified and proven to be assisting the suspects, they will be held accountable,” she said.

She urged Pastor Quiboloy and the other accused to surrender and face the charge against them. 

Tuazon, however, believed that all six individuals are still in Davao City.

Meanwhile, Quiboloy is also facing an arrest order from the Senate over his continued refusal to attend hearings on allegations of human trafficking, rape, sexual abuse, and violence filed against him by former sect members.

He is also included in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s wanted list for his alleged participation in a “labor trafficking scheme that brought church members to the US, via fraudulently obtained visas, and forced the members to solicit donations for a bogus charity, donations that were used to finance church operations and the lavish lifestyles of its leaders.”
