Lagos to decide on Rev King, other inmates soon

by adminV
The Lagos State government, has stated that it will make a
final decision on the case of the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying
Assembly, Rev Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, popularly known as Reverend King as well as
other murder convicts in the state following a judgement by the Supreme Court.

During a media briefing on Tuesday at the flag off of the
yearly ministerial briefing of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, the
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Adeniji Kazeem, revealed that
following a briefing from the prisons authorities regarding the condemned
inmates, a decision is necessary and it will be soon enough.
“This government is very strong on law and order. And the
case is one of those that is under review. Like him, many others are on death
row. And very soon, residents of Lagos will see the action of the government on
it.
“There are lots of people on death row. There are some
states that have been active in enforcing the judgement. I know that many had
zeroed in on Rev King. I discussed his issues actively with the prison
authority during my recent prison visit and it was on the instruction of
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode. That shows it is a sensitive issue.
“I have given you indication that we are moving towards that
direction. The previous governors of this state have not signed the papers of
any of those on death row. But the prison authority had informed that some of
the convicts are beginning to think they have some rights. We are going to move
in that direction, you will hear from me,” The Commissioner for Justice said.
It will be recalled that on January 17, 2017, the Supreme
Court upheld the judgements of the trail and Appeal Court that sentenced rev
King to death by hanging for murder of a church member
