A former close aide of self-appointed “Son of God” Pastor Apollo Quiboloy is believed to be the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) source for information which led to the filing of immigration fraud charges against three ranking officials of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KJC).
KJC chief administrator Ingrid Canada accused her own brother, Gregorio Canada, and his family of giving false information to the FBI to damage the reputation of Quiboloy and KJC.
“We have reasonable grounds to believe that he and/or his immediate family are in connivance with some people who are out to demolish the reputation of our Beloved Pastor,” Ingrid said, adding that Greg’s own daughter may have presented herself as an alleged victim of human trafficking to the FBI.
Acting on a complaint filed by unnamed former KJC members, FBI agents arrested on January 29 three ranking KJC officials in California for allegedly trafficking believers into the United States.
The former KJC members claimed that church members are flown into the US with a visa for performing at musical events. However, once the members arrive in the US, their passports are taken away from them and are forced to become “full-time workers (FTWs)” who solicit donations.
Ingrid said she found the timing of the filing of charges against Quiboloy suspect since it happened months after Greg and his family left the church in September last year.
Greg supposedly fled following calls to audit the finances of Jose Maria College, KJC’s school, and Apollo Air. The school was led by Greg’s wife while Apollo Air’s top honcho was his son-in-law.
Ingird said her brother, 56, used to be Quiboloy’s right-hand man and was a full-time worker of KJC for 18 years.
In 2007, Greg ran for barangay chairman in Davao with Quiboloy’s support. He won and got reelected in 2010 and 2013.
It was supposedly during Greg’s stint as barangay chairman that he allegedly started misusing not only KJC’s funds, but also the money allotted for the community.
He also reportedly hired 100 “ghost” employees, whose compensation since 2010 could not be accounted for.
Charges are reportedly being eyed against Greg before the Office of the Ombudsman.
Ingrid questioned the FBI’s decision to believe Greg and his immediate family’s accusations against Pastor Quiboloy and the KJC despite their questionable background.
“At best, the FBI should have consulted us first because the KJC has been fully cooperating with the American government,” she said.
