Lagos State Government Ready to Execute Rev. King, Others on Death Row


The Lagos Government is set to execute inmates on death row in the state prisons, including the General-Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly, Chukwuemeka Ezeugo, a.k.a Rev. King.

The State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Adeniji Kazeem, made this known at a news conference on Tuesday. He said the development was at the instruction of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

He further said that the state had begun reviewing the matter after prison officials complained of the highhandedness of some death row inmates who felt that they had certain rights which excluded them from being executed.

The Attorney-General assured that, unlike previous administrations, Governor Ambode would sign the necessary documents to execute those on death row.

According to a PM News report, Kazeem said, “Very soon, you will see the action of this government on that issue, we are reviewing the case on Rev. King and others 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 their concerns.

"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.”
