Update: Photos/Video from the arrest of Nigerian pastor accused of sexually abusing young women in South Africa

Nigerian pastor, Tim Omotoso who is accused of molesting the congregants of his church including teenage girls has been taken into custody.

The Hawks earlier confirmed they are investigating allegations of human trafficking against the televangelist - following a lead by the SABC's Special Assignment.
 The controversial Nigerian pastor was arrested on Thursday, April 20, at the Port Elizabeth airport in a dramatic show by the Hawks and some members of the police's tactical response unit.

The plane touched down at the airport at around 3pm when he and other passengers entered the baggage arrival hall, members armed with automatic weapons rushed into the area as he appeared to be fleeing.

In the confusion, some members were seen running through the airport looking for him but he was found inside the toilet in the arrivals.

He was then marched out of the toilet and the airport building to an awaiting car, as crowds at the airport cheered his arrest.

Hawks spokesperson, Robert Netshiunda says the evangelist could be facing more charges.
"We have arrested him for trafficking persons. We are laying that charge now. Because we are investigating further, there's a possibility of us adding more charges," he said. 
The 58-year-old pastor allegedly trafficked young women and girls from various branches of his church to a house in, uMhlanga, Kwazulu-Natal where he allegedly exploited them sexually.
The pastor was arrested shortly after landing at the Port Elizabeth International Airport by the Hawks and the South African Police Service’s Tactical Response Team (TRT) members.
The suspect will appear before the New Law Court in Port Elizabeth on Friday, 21 April.

Each time I watch this Pst Tim Omotosho on TVC, I see this grp of 5 cute ladies (BTW 19 - 23 years) singing while the Pst is playing the piano for them. And I asked my brother why he doesn't have guys in his mini choir or allow someone else play the piano for his "song birds" since he will be preaching afterwards. Now I can guess why he's so distancing other male folks from them cuties. Pst toh badt gan. #Lawdamercy

I so agree with you. when I attended one program he was invited to in Ibadan, the man was just showing off this overly endowed five girls. throughout the program to me he was basically bragging about himself. you needed to have seen the way he was handling the girls. a week after the program the pastor of the church that invited him had to tell the congregation that not all the things he said should be taken and that he will never be invited again.
am so not surprise he is been arrested now
