Pastor Tim Omotosho has been accused of sexually abusing female church members

The 58-year-old Nigerian miracle worker is reportedly the senior pastor of the Jesus Dominion International and was arrested in South Africa.

He was later arraigned in court on Friday, April 21, 2017, and was subsequently denied bail.

South African police have alleged that Mr. Omotosho has trafficked about 30 young girls over the years from various branches of his church to a house in Umulanga, KwaZulu-Natal where he allegedly exploited them sexually.

Punch reports that Omotosho allegedly handpicked the girls, instructing them to live in his house where he forced them to have unprotected sex with him.

Omotosho reportedly appeared before the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on Friday, where his case was postponed to May 3.

Mr. Omotoso, who is the founder of a 24-hour satellite TV station, Ancient of Days Broadcasting Network (ADBN), which is aired across the Caribbean, Africa, Mexico, Middle East, Europe and the United States, is reportedly married and blessed with three children.
