April 18, 2017 – Lagos Still Contemplating On The Execution Of Reverend King 10 Years After He Was Sentenced To Death By Hanging

Lagos Explains Why Rev King Is Yet To Be Hanged…. Execution Delayed After Convict Told Prison Officials He Has Right To Live

The Lagos State Government is still yet to make a decision on the execution of the General Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, CPA, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King, and others on death row in Lagos prisons.

The nation’s apex court had on 27 February, 2016 upheld the judgement of the Appeal Court which passed death penalty on King, saying the condemned cleric must die by hanging.

State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem at a ministerial press conference on Tuesday in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria said the state government was reviewing the matter and would make a decision very soon.

Kazeem said he visited prisons in the state recently on the instruction of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and prison officials drew his attention to the highhandedness of those on death row.

He said these condemned prisoners felt that they had certain rights which excluded them from being executed.

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

“Very soon, you will see the action of this government on that issue. We are reviewing the case of Rev. King and others on death roll,” he said.

Kazeem, who said previous administrations 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 documents 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 discussed 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.

  1. I believe his church members have done a form of human sacrifice for him to escape death. This should be the secret behind his freedom.

  2. They can never hang rev king he sold his soul to the devil long ago. The only thing that can kill him is sickness

    • I disagree with you @ Ola, if you know how many people rev King has murdered you wont condemn capital punishment.
      What if any member of your family were among his victims
      would you have condemned his execution?

      • I do not care how many people he killed, and I have thought of my family member been among his victims…I still oppose to capital punishment.
        Tell me one good thing that will come out of killing him? I await your response…

        • I still do not agree with you, Rev king has taken too many souls in his short lifetime, he deserves whatever he got. If released, he will kill more virgins for ritual, that is where the problem lies.

  3. They said he attempted murder not that he killed anyone…… Those saying he has been killing TKAKENOTE.

  4. @OLA did I here you say nobody has the right to kill? I want to let you know that Government has every full right to take away the life of a murderer. I seriously doubt if you know the highly criminal profile of Reverend King. Many of the young virgin girls he used,dumped and killed for ritual purposes cannot not be easily forgotten by many of his congregant who openly testified against him in the court . Reverend King’s wickedness and ritualism was thoroughly investigated and confirmed to be true by the court. So what are you talking about? Oh!,you want him released so that he can go back to that shrine he called church and start killing unsuspecting innocent lives again eh?

    • @ EDURANCE, LIKE I SAID, NOBODY SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO KILL. INCLUDING YOUR SO CALL GOVT. LIKE I SAID, I DO NOT CARE HOW MANY PEOPLE HE KILLED, AND I’M NOT SURE WHERE YOU GET THE IDEAL OF ME WANTING HIM TO BE REALESED..LOL I NEVER SAID THAT! THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED LIFE IMPRISONMENT/SOLITARY WHICH WILL PREVENT HIM FROM COMMITTING ANY FUTURE ATROCITIES…
      CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IS BARBARIC AND UNNECESSARY…

  5. Two wrongs doesn’t and can never make right,nobody has right to terminate life.Life imprisonement can still be an option

    • THANK YOU @ GERALD STEPHEN..I’M GLAD WE STILL HAVE SENSIBLE PEOPLE LIKE YOU AROUND.I GUEES ALL HOPES ARE NOT LOST AFTER ALL…STAY BLESSED BROTHER.

      • Ola, here is a scenario. You came back from work one day, God forbid, you found your wife, your children and may be your elderly parents murdered in cold blooded by a psychotic individual. After being apprehended, tried and sentenced to death, won’t you be glad that judgement has finally been meted out on such person or will you go and appeal to the government to halt his execution because you don’t believe in capital punishment. Let us all be careful when we express our opinion in public domain. Whatever we cannot accept we should not force it on others. There is no reason for that guy to live after some gruesome murder he had committed. At least the victims family will be happy to see the killer of their loved one receiving the same judgement.

        • I HEAR YOU AND YOUR SCENARIO..IF I LOST MY FAMILY THE WAY YOU DESCRIBED ABOVE, THERE IS NO WAY ANY JUDGEMENT CAN BE METED. NOTHNG WILL BE DONE TO FIX MY WOUND/PAIN. YOU CAN KILL THE INDIVIDUAL 10 TIMES OVER.
          I WILL ALWAYS BE AGAINST CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, NO MATTER WHAT…@JILO, I NEVER FORCE MY OPINION ON ANYONE. “CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IS BARBARIC AND WRONG”.

  6. what of the building that collapsed that killed congregants?when will justice be done ?any one found guilty should serve the sentence.

  7. What a thoughtless and careless comment from you @OLA. ‘You do not care how many people Reverend King may have killed’ right? I think we need to learn how to show a measure of empathy when people are unjustly murdered even though our family are not affected. Reverend King had committed crime punishable by death and has been on a death row laid down by the court since 10years now. I will not advise you and your co-defendant to continue clinging or hanging onto the notion that your Government has no right to execute a murderer. Your country Nigeria still fall among over 100 countries earthwide that still considered CAPITAL PUNISHMENT as a perfect response to whoever is charged by the court as a murderer. While many countries have already abolished CAPITAL PUNISHMENT as a justifiable means of executing a murderer,many countries such as CHINA among others in ASIA, United State of America, Arab countries at large,some other african countries including Nigeria still uphold this system of practise. So it would be delusional on the part of anyone to criticize the Nigerian Government if they go ahead in executing a murderer that has already been found guilty and condemned to death by the court of law. Therefore, I do not think anyone’s personal assertion kicking against execution of a murderer actually count provided the Nigerian Government is acting within their legal and national right as did other countries.

  8. @ ENDURANCE,YOUR ONLY DEFENCE SEEMS TO BE BECAUSE 100 COUNTRIES PRACTICE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT INCLUDING YOUR BELOVED NIGERIA THAT’S STILL 100 YEARS BEHING MORDERN COUNTRIES.THE COUNTRY THAT CAN NOT PROVIDE YOU A STABLE ELECTRICITY. KEEP YOUR IGNORANCE HISTORY LESSON TO YOURSELF, I’M VERY WELL AWARE OF CONTRIES WITH CAPITAL PUNISHMENTS, ITS ACTUALLY ABOUT 70 OR LESS.
    I DID A PAPER ON IT IN COLLEGE AND I GOT 98. IT’S YOUR PEROGATIVE TO AGREED OR ACCEPT WITH WHATEVER YOUR CORRUPTED GOVT DISH AT YOU.I ON THE OTHER HAND WAS RAISED TO THINK FOR MYSELF BY USING MY BRAIN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS…..I CAN CARELESS IF 150 CONTRIES PRACTICES IT. DEATH PENALTY IS WRONG AND BARBARIC. GIVE ME ONE REASON WHY ITS GOOD AND I’LL GIVE YOU 10 REASONS WHY I;M AGAINST IT…..STAY BLESSED

  9. You called that ignorant history? Its obvious you hate to be shown some facts, and you hardly learn if you remain this way. I will only urge you to stop defending what is undefendable. Capital Punishment is a constitutionally permissible form of punishment in your country called Nigeria. This act Is legal in Nigeria, period! And it comes in many form either through death by hanging or firing squared and the use of a lethal injection on the murderer in order to kill such individual slowly which is also commonly practise in US. So therefore, your personal opinion or criticism regarding Capital punishment doesn’t matter provided your country Nigeria legally practise it under it national law. So I still reiterate the fact that with the existing national law, the government has every right to execute a murderer. Get that very clear, ok? And stop criticizing your government.

  10. LOL…I SEE THE PROBLEM, YOU HATED THAT I CRITICIZED YOUR INCOMPETENT GOVT. LISTENING GENIUS, IT’S YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO CRITIC YOUR GOVT..
    YOU THINK BECAUSE AN ACT IS THE LAW OF THE LAND OR IT’S WRITTEN BY SOME CORRUPT POLITICIANS IT’S MAKES IT RIGHT??!… YOU KNOW SLAVERY WAS PERFECTLY LEGAL IS THE UNITED STATES AT A TIME.. IT WAS PEOPLE WITH OPEN MIND LIKE ME THAT HELPS TO CHALLENGE AND HELP TO ABOLISH SUCH INHUMAN ACT. SO, FREE YOUR SELF ******, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I’VE EVER EXPERIENCED WAS THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION….LIKE I SAID, *********.. I’M VERY WELL AWARE OF THE WAYS IN WHICH YOU LIKE TO KILL PEOPLE, I BET YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN/MUSLIM TOO HUH?…LOL
    I ASKED YOU TO GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON OF A DEATH PENALTY, YOU HAVEN’T. I’M STILL WAITING MY DEAR…”DEATH PENALTY IS CRUEL AND UNSUAL AND NEEDS TO BE ABOLISH” STAY BLESSED MY DUDE

  11. I know you seriously lack ****. But I still deemed it necessary to enlighten you a bit because it appears the k***********************is not enough. Mr defendant are you telling us that you are wiser than God who instituted the Death Penalty or Capital Punishment that most world Government Adopt? Do you know the death penalty was first instituted by God himself in the book of Genesis 9:6? Which stated that “whosoever shed a man’s blood,by man shall his blood be shed” I want you to know that the Nigerian government you are busy castigating are not the ones that invented the Death Penalty or Capital Punishment and has no right to abandon it. The problem we have is,we live in an age where everyone is far too concern with human right and God has been practically ignored as if he has no right to set a standard for we humans. God does has right and it is his right to do as he pleases with his own creation. God has given the MORAL DUTY to execute those who take the lives of others. Exodus 21:12 says“he that smites a man so that he die shall be surely put to death. @OLA do you wish to honor your creator-God? If yes then you must support the death penalty or capital punishment because God commanded it. So stop blaming Nigeria Government or any Government that practises capital punishment as way of executing a murderer. They not just have the constitutional and legal right to do so,but is also backed by your creator who made you and I. So keep your small ***** to yourself ok? And learn how to respect your Government.

  12. But dont u think he is a man of let god handle him not the government have u forgoten in bible touch not my anoitine and do my prophet no harm
