The Nigerian pastor was arrested yesterday at the Port Elizabeth Airport by the Hawks and police's tactical response unit. 

The televangelist allegedly molested congregants - some as young as 14-years-old. The Hawks say additional charges could be added as investigations are ongoing.  

The pastor first came to light on the SABC's Special Assignment where a number of the victims spoke of the alleged sexual abuse. 

The ANC Women's League's  Buyelwa Mafaya says he should not be granted bail. 

"A man who is calling himself a man of God - a Christian doing things that are so inhumane - we are saying today there will be no bail for him," he said.
