Pastor Tim Omotosho is accused of sexual abuse

South African Broadcasting Corporation 3 (SABC3), reports that the police had received several petitions that Pastor Omotosho, the General Overseer of Jesus Dominion International based in Durban, had been abusing young girls at his Umhlanga home and when a warrant was issued for his arrest, he reportedly skipped and has been in hiding.

It was gathered that several female members of the pastor's church have come out in recent times to accuse him of luring them into his house to molest them sexually.

According to reports on SABC3’s Special Assignment, Pastor Omotoso allegedly handpicked the girls from the church populated by young people and instructed them to live in his house where they were forced to have unprotected sex with him.

The Police Spokesperson, Lt. Col. Robert Netshiunda who confirmed the incident, said that Pastor Omotoso had gone underground and all three cell phones linked to him had been deactivated.

“We are investigating the matter and we will only lay charges after getting him,” Netshiunda said.

The pastor was said to have allegedly molested more than 30 young girls on the pretext of rescuing them from drugs. Some of the girls had reportedly dropped out of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, while others began traveling with him while singing for the pastor’s group known as Simply Christolite.
