Prophet Tim Omotoso reportedly thinking of killing himself in prison

NAIJ.com gathered that Nigerian pastor Tim Omotoso, who was arrested for allegedly abusing over 30 young girls in South Africa, is considering killing himself.

Following his arrest, Prophet Tim Omotoso of the Jesus Dominion International Church, in South Africa, is said to be having sleepless nights while in prison.

Prophet Omotoso's travel documents were seized by the Port Elizabeth Magistrates Court, for proper checks.

Omotoso's defence led by Advocate Alfonso Hattingh, complained about their client's 'living conditions' at the St Alban's prison.

Hattingh said his client, Prophet Omotoso, was entertaining thoughts of killing himself, because according to him, his ordeal has affected his physical and mental state.

The defence also said Omotoso has been struggling to sleep in his cell.

Speaking on the matter, Ivan Claasen, a Home Affairs immigration officer, said:

I found it strange that his visa is in his old passport, which will expire in August, and not the new one which he allegedly used for travel.

It’s suspicious that he left South Africa and returned when the new passport he used did not contain a work permit. Home Affairs need to verify that both passports plus the visa are authentic and to investigate how he travelled using the new passport when it does not have his visa.”
