Nigerian pastor, Timothy Omotoso will appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s court on Tuesday for a second bail application.

He was denied bail by the magistrate, citing that he was a flight risk and could intimidate witnesses.

The presiding magistrate, Thandeka Mashile said that the nature and gravity of the offences permitted no bail.

She cited that Omotoso was in the country illegally, with false documents, and therefore could be a flight risk.

The Jesus Dominion International Church leader faces charges of human trafficking and sexual abuse after allegedly keeping under-age girls at his house in Durban.
