Angel Manalo speaks to supporters after arrest
MANILA, Philippines – Supporters of Felix Nathaniel "Angel" Manalo, the estranged sibling of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo, flocked to Camp Karingal in Quezon City on Thursday night, March 2, to see the former INC member after his arrest.
A video taken at Camp Karingal on Thursday showed Manalo, clad in a blue shirt and black pants, approaching the gate to greet supporters who came to see him.
Manalo was arrested on Thursday, hours after policemen entered the INC compound where his house was located, supposedly armed with a search warrant. (READ: 'Dapa, dapa, dapa!' Cops drive Manalo siblings out of Iglesia compound)
Police, however, failed to produce a search warrant when they barged into the Manalos' house on Thursday, according to Angel's wife, Jenny.
The police also refused to confirm charges against Manalo, although reports said he was charged with illegal possession of firearms. (READ: Masked men threaten media covering Iglesia conflict)
