South Africa-based Nigerian Pastor Tim Omotoso Charged with Human Trafficking for Allegedly Molesting more than 30 Girls



Tim Omotoso

South African police has arrested on Tim Omotoso, 58, the senior pastor of the Jesus Dominion International, an interdenominational ministry, based in Durban.

He was arrested on Thursday at Port Elizabeth airport shortly after his flight landed.

He was accused of luring young girls into his bedroom and molesting them.

According to South African Broadcasting Corporation 3 (SABC3)’s Special Assignment, Omotoso allegedly handpicked the girls (about 30 of them) and instructed them to live in his house where they were forced to have unprotected sex with him.

Watch the Special Assignment feature here:

South African authorities charged Omotoso with human trafficking.

Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on Friday postponed the case to May 3rd and ordered his remand in prison.

Earlier on Friday, protesters gathered outside the courtroom, calling for him to be denied bail.

    This is obviously the season of randy Nigerian pastors. If he was in Nigeria the girls mothers will come out to say their daughters are possessed, how dare them accuse a man of God of molesting them?

    I hope he is sentenced to life imprisonment. Piece of shit

    People should be very careful when they’re going through trials because that’s usually when we’re most vulnerable. If you believe in God, try and find a good church when your life is in a good place. One of the easiest ways to enter one chance is trying to find a church/pastor when your life is all messed up. Church should be about fellowship abeg.

    The irony. If this was in Nigeria nothing would have happened to this man. Jesus’ only rule was for us to love. Love God, love yourself and love your neighbour. This man represents all Nigerian christians whether we like it or not. Lets stop focusing on the bad in other religions and focus on the bad in ours. Nigerian christians need to start questioning pastors. This shit has gotten out of hand.

    If he was in Nigeria no one would touch him because his congregation and other dummies would be screaming “touch not my anointed”.
    I hope the South Africans do not deport him because over here nothing will happen.
    Let him rot in jail there forever.

    Every country (including well doing african nations ) should BAN nigerians from their country.
    These are the reasons why no one wants you on their land.

    If you go to someones country respect the law – simple as that

    Last week 30 yahoo yahoo 419ers were caught in Achimota ghana of which 29 were nigerian. . NKwasiasem. You go to someones land and you want to break laws. When do you ever hear ghanaians in nigeria breaking your laws.

    Everywhere you go – you fk up. and break laws. Cos you are so desperate for money to buy your rubbish materialistic wealth to flaunt or show off on social media. UK, USA, Canada, South Africa, Malaysia etc etc etc

      You really hate us Nigerians with so much anger and fury and I feel this your bitterness towards us is not based on this video but it is based on your extreme jealousy and envy when you see Nigerians prospering everywhere we go. For your information there are Ghanaian criminals everywhere but I would never say because some Ghanaians are criminals so that means every Ghanaian I see is a criminal and then start a campaign of hatred towards the whole of Ghana. I have very good Ghanaian friends and I will advice you to watch your black and hatred filled heart before it lands you in hell.

    This is still an allegation. Until it is proven in court he should still be regarded as innocent.

      Thank you Ken,

      In as much as I am really scared of Nigerian pastors based on so many experiences, I will never say all Nigerian pastors are fakes or from the devil. I think the problem with the fake Nigerian pastors is that they like to use your problems as the background for abusing you! If you go to these wicked so called Nigerian pastors and tell them all the secrets and problems you are encountering they would now use those problems as a base to start their mountain prayers and fasting and siphoning money from you, remote controlling your life until they become your god and lead you away from the real God who created you. I would want us to also know that there is extreme xenophobia in South Africa against successful Nigerians so a well known Nigerian pastor can be an easy target just. So before we all say anything against this pastor, let his accusers bring forth indisputable evidence. He might be a wolf or might be innocent, we never can say! Look at the way Ama is blackmailing all Nigerians with so much hatred in her post. I would never pray to be accused of a crime I didn’t commit, so in as much as our Naija pastors are very scary to deal with, let us not accuse someone of a crime we can’t accurately verify! Just saying!

      South African police are involved in xenophobia? Any crime a Nigerian commits in SA must be xenophobia induced..

      Did you not hear the man was deported for the same crime in the Uk… pls I get what u r saying .. bt pastors don’t need to get away with all these heinous crimes.. Nd I am particularly troubled by ur repeated use of the term “Nigerian pastors” particularly troubling because South African pastors have committed more heinous crimes.. molestation nd rape is not new in SA nd is certainly not new amongst pastors.. Nd just like in Nigeria, their law stays protecting them.. It is possible tht they are coming after this particular pastor because he is foreign.. but that doesn’t mean the crime wasn’t committed.. I believe he shld rot in jail because there is way too much evidence stacked against him.. and also the SA government nd police shld punish their own pastors who commit the same crimes nd go Scot free.. I get its ur country bt that doesn’t give anyone the right to harm young girls, make congregants drink petrol, have sex with them under the guise of removing spirits, making them give blow jobs etc etc.. It isn’t acceptable no matter what nationality the pastor is..

      A friend of mine has been meaning to do a Documentary about this but got discouraged because believe it or not this fake pastors story has been done to death… even in SA.. bt people just do not listen.. Nd its very sad

      I don’t think xenophobia is based on jelousy towards Nigerians success but towards their crime in the country. Not to say there are no breaking law ppl but it is better for each country to deal with their own people instead of Ghana dealing with Nigerian crime in Ghana. Let Ghanaians deal with their own people abeg…

    I’m a South African in South Africa. I must say, I’m generally warm in my heart reading most of the comments here. It’s very encouraging. Crime is a crime, period. It’s got nothing to do with whether a person is a Nigerian, South African or any other nationality. It knows no bounds. Africans have to unite against evils that paint all of us in one paint brush in the eyes of the world.

      MO i encourage you to follow solomon izang ashoms on fb.. he is a joburg based nigerian journalist.. he has jst released audio evidence of this disgusting pastor admitting to using his penis to heal people… what is troubling is that so many South african ladies are supporting this man.. nd insulting solomon.. im telling u tht these pastors will continue their rubbish until people wakeup… they r being led astray and they dont even care..

      I listened to that message and what Solomon has released makes no sense. You can’t cut a 3minutes clip in a 1 hour message for people to listen to. TOTALLY INADMISSIBLE!!! You dont know what he was talking about before then or after that statement. You don’t know how he got to that statement he made you’re just feeding people with sensation. That’s not journalism. Stop it! Upload the full message of the man and let people decide

    I have lived in South Africa for 15 years and surely I habe never witnessed someome arrested so swiftly after an investigative program. There have been SA pastors feeding rats, petrol, fuel, insecticides to their congregation and nothing spectacular has ever come out of it. Having said that, the law will always prevail. When a man is charged he has the opportunity to have his day in court to defend himself with evidence. But I won’t be shocked if this turns out to be one cork and bull story thought off by some fools who thinks its funny. May justice prevail

    I can just imagine the Jews shouting, crucify Him, crucify Him… when Jesus was brought before Pilate. For those who are already condemning this pastor and you claim to be a Christian, remember he is your BROTHER. The right thing to do is to pray for him. That is, if he is actually guilty. This is what the Lord ask us to do. Remember ‘pastor’ is only a title or an office. Managing that office or title could be very challenging. So my advice to all is to pray for him to be restored if he is guilty or be strengthened to overcome this trial if he is not guilty.

    As Christians, we are all tempted and while some are able to withstand, others could fall. Therefore, the onus is on us that are standing to help others to be restored. We should not allow the devil to get the glory over a brother in travail.

    God bless!

    Believers should pray for Tim Omotosho as he goes through this trying period, the Lord will build his Church and the gate of hell will not prevail against it. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ the righteous, he is the propitiation for our sins : 1 John 2:1b & 2a. Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits at this end time for his glory. May God help us all. Amen..
