Reverend King Set to be Executed by Lagos State

Do you remember the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying AssemblyChukwuemeka Ezeugo, known as Rev. King, who was sentenced to death by hanging, by the appeal court and upheld by the Supreme court on 27th February 2016? He will soon be executed by the Lagos State Government.


According to the State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, during the ministerial press conference held in Lagos yesterday, he mentioned that the state government reviewed the matter, with a view to taking a critical decision very soon.

He mentioned that he visited the Lagos state prisons recently, and found out that those on death row were acting as though they had certain rights, which excluded them from being executed. The prison officials also complained about this attitude.

Kazeem said: “Very soon, you will see the action of this government on that issues, we are reviewing the case on Rev. King and others on death row.

Lots of people are on death row, Rev. King is not the only one on death row, it is on the instruction of Governor Ambode that I visited the prisons recently and I discuss the issue with the prison officials and they expressed their concerns.

We are moving in that direction of signing the decision. The prison officials said we need to look at that seriously. Those on death row are beginning to think they have some rights. We are going to move in that direction, you will hear from me, but I will not tell you the exact date.”

He also said that the case of Major Hamzat Al-Mustapha, the Chief Security Officer of General Sani Abacha accused of killing the late Kudirat Abiola, has been re-opened.
