Two other members of the religious organization were charged along with Pastor Quiboloy.
“Apollo Carreon Quiboloy, the founder of a Philippines-based church, 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,” the FBI wanted poster alleged.
The US federal agency also claimed that church members were forced to participate in sham marriages or get fraudulent visas so they can continue their activities on US soil, Philippine Star reported.

“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,” the FBI alleged in its wanted poster.
Apollo Carreon Quiboloy is a church leader in the Philippines. He is the leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. He has made claims that he is "The Appointed Son of God" as well as being "The Owner of the Universe".
U.S. prosecutors previously announced that sex-trafficking charges have been filed against Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. The charges stated that girls, as young as 12-year-olds were allegedly coerced to have intercourse with the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, The Name Above Every Name leader. Quiboloy, along with two more US-based church administrators were included in the 74-page indictment charges. The girls were allegedly threatened with eternal damnation if they would not acquiesce to the alleged desires of the church leaders.
Senator Manny Pacquiao made good on his threat to file the criminal case of libel against Pastor Apollo Quiboloy. Earlier, Pastor Quiboloy, the founder and leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ church, allegedly said that Sen. Pacquiao is behind the anomalous P3.5 billion Sarangani Sports Complex project. The senator vehemently denied the allegations, saying that Pastor Quiboloy deliberately misled the people by showing old photos of a building built in 1996 at a time when the legislator was still a kid.
