Court Of Appeal Reaffirms Death Penalty For Rev. King

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

A Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos has reaffirmed the death penalty passed on  Chukwuemeka Ezeugo a.k.a Rev. King, the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly.

A Lagos High Court had earlier passed the death penalty on “Rev. King”. The panel of judges said the lower court acted in the interest of justice by sentencing the preacher to death.

Reverend Chukwuemeka Ezeuko aka Rev King was arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to death by hanging in January 2007 for the death of one of his church members, a young girl named Ann Uzoh, who he set ablaze by pouring fuel on her along with 6 other church members after accusing them of committing fornication in his church. Ann died in hospital from injuries she sustained from the burn. Rev King has been in prison since then awaiting his death sentence, which he appealed and lost.
