PNP steps up manhunt for Pastor Quiboloy

 TACLOBAN CITY – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Rommel Francisco Marbil  said they are doing their best to arrest fugitive pastor Apollo Quiboloy.

Speaking to reporters during his brief visit at the Police Regional Office 8 headquarters in Palo, Leyte, Marbil said they have been helping the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), the lead agency in the manhunt, find the location of Quiboloy.

“We have a strategy to locate him. We are closing in, and we are very diplomatic about it,” he said, discounting Senator Risa Hontiveros’ statement that the police are slow in implementing warrants of arrest against Quiboloy.

Quiboloy is facing qualified human trafficking and child sexual abuse charges.

PRO-8 is the first PNP regional headquarters visited by Marbil since his appointment as PNP chief on April 1, 2024.

Marbil was the PRO-8 regional director from 2022 to 2023, where he initiated the deployment of police officers to the region’s Maharlika Highway to prevent crimes.

“Our troops here really helped me to become one of the best,” he added.

During his visit, Marbil led the inauguration of some structures inside the regional office compound, which was started during his stint as regional chief here.
