A YouTuber Took Down An FBI Fugitive’s YouTube Channel

SomeOrdinaryGamers takes down Quiboloy
James Francisco

Controversial pastor Apollo Quiboloy has had his YouTube channel terminated by the platform for violating its Community Guidelines. And it all started with a heads-up from one of its popular creators.

YouTuber SomeOrdinaryGamers, who has over 3.4 million subscribers, notified Team YouTube on Twitter about the channel run by Quiboloy, who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for multiple sex trafficking, conspiracy, and cash smuggling charges.

YouTube’s support team confirmed the takedown in a reply.

A self-proclaimed “Anointed Son of God”, Quiboloy was first indicted on November 2021 and placed on the Most Wanted List in February of the following year. 

According to a statement by the US Treasury Department, Quiboloy, who leads the Kingdom of Jesus Christ (KOJC) congregation, allegedly recruited young women as “pastorals”; personal assistants within the US and the Philippines who were supposedly required to have sex with the pastor.

Other charges include smuggling KOJC members into the US via fraudulent visas and forcing members to solicit donations, which were then used to fund the lavish lifestyles of its leaders.

But while there is a federal warrant for Quiboloy’s arrest, the FBI cannot pursue the pastor while he is in the Philippines unless he is extradited, which will require the President’s approval.

Got something to say?

Why this hesitancy on the part of the Philippine President? Was it Duterte or Marcos? Justice delayed is wickedness condoned by the also wicked.
