MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) will file criminal complaints against six members of the religious sect Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC) for their alleged attempt to attack authorities while serving the arrest warrants against Apollo Quiboloy and others in Davao City.

PNP spokesperson Col. Jean Fajardo did not identify the six KJC members but said they were seen bearing weapons such as bolo knives and a gun.

“Sa Glory Mountain may attempt na atakiyin ang mga pulis natin kaya may anim tayo dinala sa station, pero kinuhaan lang natin ng ilang detalye nirelease din po natin,” Fajardo said in a press briefing.

(In Glory Mountain, there was an attempt to attack our police, so we brought six KJC members to the station, but we only took some details and released them.)

“Pero, we intend to file a case through regular filing for obstruction of justice,” she added.

(But, we intend to file a case for obstruction of justice through regular filing.)

Last June 10, about a hundred members of the PNP served three arrest warrants against Quiboloy and five others Cresente Canada, Paulene Canada, Ingrid Canada, Sylvia Camanes, and Jackiely Roy.


According to PNP, authorities conducted simultaneous operations in the Kingdom of Jesus Christ compound in Buhangin district, the 25-hectare Glory Mountain in Barangay Tamayong, and the 50-hectare Prayer Mountain — properties in Davao City believed to be frequently visited by Quiboloy.

Quiboloy’s lawyer, Israelito Torreon, said the police were allowed to enter the compound after their lawyers arrived in the area.

But revealed the gate of the Glory Mountain “as smashed [and] destroyed when the police forcibly entered the property.”

Similar to Fajardo’s report the lawyer said five members of KJC “were arrested and handcuffed by the police as they allegedly were carrying bolos during the raid.”

In response, PNP said in a statement last June 11 that  the police force conducted the operation “in strict compliance with its legal security protocols.”

It added that the service of the warrant did not cause any harm to anyone.
