PORT ELIZABETH - A Nigerian pastor accused of sexually assaulting more than 30 young women will appear in court on Friday.

He faces human trafficking charges.

His high-powered legal team, which also represents murder-accused Christopher Panayiotou, was granted access to him last night.

The pastor's arrest, however, proved difficult for the Hawks.

Flying to Port Elizabeth from his Durban home, the pastor believed he would be meeting his defence team on landing.

But instead he found the Hawks waiting for him.

He instantly made a run for it, hiding in a toilet cubicle before being arrested.
