A Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos yesterday ruled that Rev King, the General Overseer of the Christian Praying Assembly who was arrested and sentenced to death six years ago for murder, must die by hanging.
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.
What's your thoughts on this? Think he deserves the death sentence
