There are indications that the Lagos State Government will execute the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, CPA, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King and others on death row in Lagos prisons soonest.

The Supreme Court had on 27 February, 2016 upheld the judgment of the Apeal Court which passed death penalty on King, saying the condemned reverend must die by hanging.
State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem at a ministerial press conference on Tuesday in Lagos, said the state government was reviewing the matter with a view to taking a crucial decision very soon.

He said the prison officials complained bitterly on this and wanted the government to take action to remedy the situation.

“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 roll,” he said.

Kazeem, who said previous administration had not deemed it fit to sign documents for the execution of convicts on death row, vowed that the Ambode administration was moving towards signing the execution document to executive those 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 Ambode that I visited the prisons recently and I discuss the issue with the prison officials and they expressed concern.

“We are moving in that direction of signing. 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 said.
