“The two police constables were taken away by the supporters. The incident is being internally investigated by police.”
Omotoso‚ 58‚ and his co-accused Lusanda Sulani‚ 36‚ and Zukiswa Sitho‚ 28‚ face 63 charges in total ranging from racketeering to sexual assault and rape allegedly committed across the country and abroad‚ including in Nigeria and Israel.
Omotoso was arrested in April 2017 at Port Elizabeth International Airport.
He has unsuccessfully applied for bail numerous times including approaching the high court and the Supreme Court of Appeal to have his bail refusal reviewed.
The alleged offences took place between 2012 and 2016 with some of the alleged victims just 13 years old.
Sulani and Sitho were each granted R2‚000 bail in December.
The altercation between police and the two women was caught on camera with one of the women struggling to escape a policeman’s grip.
On Monday Omotoso’s legal team unsuccessfully tried to have the charges against him quashed.
