A controversial preacher who claimed to help infertile couples have miracle babies by prayer has appeared in court facing charges of child kidnap.
The 54-year-old, dressed smartly in a dark grey suit, striped tie and light grey shirt, appeared for a brief preliminary hearing at the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
He was told to return to court on January 31 to fix a date for a full extradition hearing.
Deya, who runs his worldwide ministry from Peckham, was arrested in December by Scotland Yard’s extradition and international assistance unit following a request from the Kenyan authorities.
He was remanded in custody after his first court appearance following his arrest but was released when family members paid the £50,000 bail.
