MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine National Police (PNP) might be suffering from a failure of intelligence as fugitive Apollo Quiboloy continues to roam freely, Sen. Risa Hontiveros said yesterday.

Newly appointed PNP chief Gen. Rommel Marbil should step up in implementing warrants of arrest against Quiboloy, she told radio dzBB.

“Three warrants were served on them: one from a Davao court, a Pasig court for a non-bailable offense and warrants from the Senate itself,” Hontiveros said.

“But he still couldn’t be arrested. So I am calling on the new PNP chief Marbil to step up because there might be a failure of intelligence as Quiboloy’s whereabouts have not yet been determined so that he can be arrested,” she added.

The Kingdom of Jesus Christ founder is facing qualified human trafficking and child and sexual abuse charges.

Hontiveros also questioned the delay in the cancelation of Quiboloy’s firearms license.

“Quiboloy has a private army, it is armed, and they post on social media that they are ready to almost kill themselves and they are ready to use their weapons. Willing to go wild just to protect Quiboloy. He is a threat to the country’s peace and order,” she stressed.

Quiboloy should be arrested so he could face hearings in different courts and the Senate, Hontiveros said.
