Omotoso was said to have abused the girls under the pretext of saving them from drug abuse. While some were members of his singing group known as Simply Christolite, others dropped out of the Kwazulu-Natal university.
Meanwhile, Bishop Vusi Dube of the National Interfaith Council of South Africa, said he had always been suspicious of Omotoso’s activities. He said: “I challenge all honest Nigerian pastors to condemn this. If they don’t, there will be assumptions that they have no problem with this behaviour.”
