Senate Seeks Help From Davao Police For Pastor Quiboloy’s Arrest

Senate Seeks Assistance from Davao Police for Pastor Quiboloy’s Arrest

SENATE – The Senate’s sergeant-at-arms has requested support from the Police Regional Office 11 in Davao to execute the warrant issued by the Senate for the apprehension of Apollo Quiboloy.

The Senate’s Office of Sergeant-at-Arms (OSAA) has been authorized to arrest Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC), following Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri’s approval of the order in March. This action stems from Quiboloy’s persistent refusal to attend the investigation conducted by the Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations and Gender Equality, chaired by Senate Deputy Minority Leader Risa Hontiveros.

The investigation concerns allegations of human trafficking, rape, s*xual abuse, violence, and child abuse within KOJC.

During a press briefing last month, Risa Hontiveros expressed her confidence in the OSAA’s ability, as the primary security body of the Senate, to carry out the order, having already served Quiboloy’s subpoena in Davao City. She also acknowledged that the OSAA could seek assistance from the Philippine National Police (PNP) if required.

With the order now in effect, the lawmaker anticipates Quiboloy’s attendance at the panel’s forthcoming public hearing, accompanied by witnesses providing sworn statements and representatives from the Anti-Money Laundering Council.

Based on a report from Philstar, the Senate’s sergeant-at-arms has reached out to the Police Regional Office 11 in Davao for support in executing the warrant issued by the Senate for the apprehension of Apollo Quiboloy, who claims to be the son of God.

According to Maj. Catherine dela Rey, the spokesperson for PRO 11, received a letter from the Senate sergeant-at-arms on March 28, seeking police assistance. However, dela Rey mentioned that the police have not yet obtained a copy of the arrest warrant targeting Quiboloy.

“We are ready to assist the Senate any time,” Dela Rey said.
