  • Quiboloy surrenders five firearms after PNP revokes license


TELEVANGELIST Pastor Apollo Quiboloy turned over five of his registered firearms when the Police Regional Office XI served the license revocation order on May 2, 2024. 

According to the report, Executive Pastor Marlon Acobo, the authorized representative of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ at Jose Maria College, surrendered the Colt rifle, two Beret pistols, and two Metrillo pistols to law enforcement. 

The pastor is still at large from the warrant of arrest charge for child abuse and qualified trafficking.

The PRO XI coordinated with the Area Police Command-Eastern Mindanao under Maj Gen Benjamin Silo Jr., and Regional Civil Security Unit under Col Apollo Reuben Togonon to serve the order from the Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) License Revocation and Restoration Board. 

The revocation order was addressed to Pastor Quiboloy and Ingrid Chavez Canada of the pastor’s civil security group.

“This successful operation reflects the unwavering efforts of law enforcement agencies in upholding the law and maintaining peace and order in the Davao Region,” the PRO XI statement said.

Previously, the police revealed that Pastor Quiboloy has 19 registered firearms but Pastor Acobo said the rest have already been sold. He also showed the police 14 pieces of documents as proof of sale. 

In an earlier statement, Atty. Israelito Torreon, the legal counsel of the pastor, intends to file a motion for reconsideration regarding the revoked firearms license.

Torreon argued that Sec. 39 of the firearms law requires a conviction before revocation of a license. He believes Section 4(g), cited by PNP, applies to applicants and not licensed firearm holders.

On April 11, the Pasig Regional Trial Court for the non-bailable case of qualified human trafficking against Pastor Quiboloy and his five associates—Ingrid Canada, Jackielyn Roy, Cresente Canada, Paulene Canada, and Sylvia Cemanes.
