Adeniji Kazeem, the Attorney-General of Lagos state, has said death row inmate, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo (a.k.a Reverend King) would meet his fate soon.
The “General Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, Rev. Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Reverend King who is presently on death roll imposed by the court would have his fate determined in due course,” said
Kazeem during a ministerial press briefing, on Thursday, in Alausa, Ikeja.
A seven-man Supreme Court, in 2016, panel upheld the death sentence passed on the controversial clergyman following the death of a church member, Ann Uzoh, in 2006.
The Lagos state government secured the conviction of the clergyman following his arraignment in court. Ruling in the matter, Justice Joseph Oyewole sentenced Ezeugo to 20 years imprisonment for the attempted murder, and death by hanging for the offence of murder.
Ezeugo appealed the ruling. His lawyer, Olalekan Ojo said Justice Oyewole miscarried justice by rejecting an evidence presented before him.
The three-man appeal court justices in their ruling upheld the conviction.
Still dissatisfied, Ezuego appealed to the Supreme Court, which similarly upheld the ruling as the two courts below.
