Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC) founder and pastor Apollo Quiboloy and two other church members are now wanted by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for sex and labor trafficking charges.

The FBI issued "Wanted" posters for Quiboloy, Teresita Tolibas Dandan, and Helen Panilag on Friday.

According to the FBI, Quiboloy is wanted for "his alleged participation in a labor trafficking scheme that brought church members to the United States, via fraudulently obtained visas, and forced the members to solicit donations for a bogus charity, donations that actually were used to finance church operations and the lavish lifestyles of its leaders."

"It is alleged that females were recruited to work as personal assistants, or 'pastorals,' for Quiboloy and that victims prepared his meals, cleaned his residences, gave him massages, and were required to have sex with Quiboloy in what the pastorals called “night duty," the FBI said.


"Members who proved successful at soliciting for the church allegedly were forced to enter into sham marriages or obtain fraudulent student visas to continue soliciting in the United States year-round," it added.

In November, Quiboloy and other church officials, including two US-based church administrators, were indicted in the US for allegedly running a sex-trafficking operation that threatened victims as young as 12 with "eternal damnation" and physical abuse.

Meanwhile, Dandan and Panilag were also included in the wanted list for their alleged participation in the labor trafficking scheme.

According to the FBI, Dandan has alleged "conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion, and sex trafficking of children; sex trafficking by force, fraud, and coercion; conspiracy; and promotional money laundering."


She allegedly was part of a labor trafficking scheme wherein members of KJC were brought to the US "via fraudulently obtained visas."

Panilag, on the other hand, is wanted by the FBI for alleged conspiracy in the said suspected labor trafficking scheme. It added that Panilag allegedly was the top church administrator in the US.

She allegedly "oversaw the collection of financial data from church operations around the globe," it added.
