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, who made this known at a news conference on Tuesday, said the development was at the instruction of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
The Attorney-General assured that, unlike previous administrations, Governor Ambode would sign the necessary documents to execute those on death row.
The Supreme Court had on February 27, 2016 affirmed the death sentence passed on King by the Appeal Court.
The condemned cleric was arraigned before the Lagos High Court in Ikeja on September 26, 2006, on six counts of murder of a member of his church, Ann Uzoh, and attempted murder of five other members.
