Read Rappler's investigative reports on the fugitive Apollo Quiboloy and the Kingdom of Jesus Christ

Doomsday preacher Apollo Quiboloy is on the run as he faces mounting cases both here and abroad related to alleged abuse committed under his Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC).

Two courts in the Philippines – in Davao City and Pasig City – already released warrants of arrest against Quiboloy but he has yet to be arrested, even if several of his close aides had already surrendered. There is also a pending arrest order from the Senate after he failed to attend hearings probing into allegations against him and his church.

Quiboloy has also put on the US Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most-wanted list since early 2022, for sex trafficking of children and promotional money laundering, among others. An FBI poster says the preacher allegedly forced his followers to “solicit donations for a bogus charity, donations that actually were used to finance church operations and the lavish lifestyle of its leaders.”

These allegations have been the subject of investigative reports published by Rappler since 2021. In this page, you will find links to these exclusive reports that investigated the alleged abuse inside KOJC as well as Quiboloy’s multi-million-peso properties in the US and Canada.

    How many days has Quiboloy been hiding? Rappler may investigate the backgrounds of the NBI and PNP officials involved in this case. Hints may rise after such an investigation. PBBM should give those officials a deadline. They must be replaced if they cannot arrest Quiboloy on or before that deadline. Rappler may also reprint articles about Pharmally executives who hide in Davao City. A pattern may become visible after their reprinting.
