- Xian Gaza went viral on social media once again for claiming that he left the Philippines even if he was facing three warrants of arrest
- He narrated on social media how he allegedly sneaked out of the country
- However, the Bureau of Immigration, Department of Justice, and Philippine National Police have spoken regarding the controversy
Businessman Christian “Xian” Gaza, who went viral for putting up a billboard to ask actress Erich Gonzales on a date, has buzzed the Internet once again.
KAMI learned that the businessman shared on social media his alleged escape from the Philippines with three warrants of arrest.
“A THREAD: "PAANO LUMABAS NG BANSANG PILIPINAS NG MAY TATLONG WARRANTS OF ARREST AT LIMANG TAONG SENTENSIYA,” he wrote.
However, he noted that his alleged escape happened on September 30, 2018.
Gaza shared that he booked three different flights going to Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taipei. The businessman checked-in his two “decoy flights,” and then went to his Hong Kong flight the last minute before boarding.
Even though the immigration officer warned Gaza that there was a red flag with his name and called the Philippine National Police, the businessman claimed that he was still able to sneak into the aircraft.
“I chose the latter. New identity, new citizenship, new passport, new life. Thank you for the 25 years of memories my dear beloved Philippines,” he said.
Here is the narration of his alleged escape:

Gaza also made a follow-up post on how the authorities would handle his case. He said that as the authorities search for him, has already moved to a different country by that time and with a different identity.
In a report by the ABS-CBN News (author Mike Navallo), the Department of Justice (DOJ) has been looking into the social media post of Gaza. They added that they asked the Bureau of Immigration to investigate the case.
As reported by the GMA News (author Anna Felicia Bajo), the Bureau of Immigration (BI) dismissed the claim of Gaza in his post.
“His story sounds like it was taken straight out of an action movie. He said it to himself, his story is based on what happened, but sadly it’s not what actually happened," BI spokesperson Dana Sandoval said.
"The story is preposterous, similar to other claims he made in the past. If you know regular airport procedures, his story sounds silly," she added.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) said that they are still investigating the post of Gaza. They also urge the public to let them know if they have any information about him to arrest the businessman immediately.
Gaza was arrested in April 2018 over an investment scam, or for violating the Anti-Bouncing Checks Law.
