PORT ELIZABETH - Nigerian Pastor Timothy Omotoso said he wants more details regarding the crimes he’s accused of in a gambit the NPA has called a delaying tactic. 

Omotoso's legal team is expected to bring an application in the High Court on Wednesday to compel the prosecuting team to provide this information.

Omotoso and his two co-accused are alleged to have lured girls to his Jesus Dominion International Church.

Twenty-one complainants say Omotoso sexually groomed and raped them.

But his lawyer Peter Daubermann wants to know exactly when and where these incidents took place.

The NPA says it’s handed over all information at its disposal and it plans to oppose Wednesday’s application. 

Judge Irma Schoeman is presiding over a new trial after the judge in the previous trial recused himself over a perceived conflict of interest related to the accommodation of witnesses at his wife's guesthouse.
